SUBJECT: February 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee 
Meeting ^%r 



Item 13 - File 89-90-16 

1. The proposed resolution would authorize one employee in the 0819 
Management Information Specialist III, Superior Court classification to enroll in 
the State Disability Insurance (SDI) Program. The cost of SDI coverage would be 
paid by the employees through normal payroll deductions. The proposed legislation 
would not involve significant cost to the City as the Controller's payroll/personnel 
system is programmed to include this deduction. 

2. SDI pays disability benefits to employees who suffer a non-industrial 
injury or illness. SDI-eligible employees have been paying into the SDI system 
since July 1, 1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1.0 percent of the first $31,767 
of gross salary for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While SDI 
coverage is mandatory for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in the 
SDI program, it is not mandatory that employee classifications which are not 
represented by a bargaining unit be included in the SDI program unless a majority 
of employees within the classification requests coverage. 

3. The Employees Relation Division reports that it received a letter from the 
sole employee in the 0819 Management Information Specialist III classification 
requesting inclusion in the SDI program. 

Recommendation 

Approve the proposed resolution. 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

February 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Items 14 and 15 - Files 97-90-1.1 and 97-91-4 



Department 
Items: 



Description: 



City Attorney 

The proposed (File 97-90-1.1) ordinance would repeal 
Section 2 of Ordinance No. 66-90, removing the Sunset 
Clause of the authority provided by Section 10.21 of the 
City's Administrative Code for the City Attorney or a 
staff member designated by the City Attorney to settle 
unlitigated claims not exceeding $5,000 without the 
approval of the Chief Administrative Officer, head of the 
department or the board or commission in charge of the 
department. 

The proposed (File 97-91-4) ordinance would amend 
Section 10.22-2 of the City's Administrative Code, 
authorizing the City Attorney or staff member 
designated by the City Attorney to settle litigated claims 
by payment not exceeding $5,000 without the approval of 
the Chief Administrative Officer, head of the department 
or the board or commission in charge of the department 
and requiring the City Attorney to submit monthly 
reports to the Board of Supervisors listing litigation 
settled for an amount not in excess of $5,000. 

Proposition A, approved by the San Francisco voters in 
June, 1986, established a Bureau of Claims Investigation 
in the City Attorney's Office and authorized, by 
ordinance, the establishment of a revolving fund to settle 
demands against the City. In February, 1990, the Board 
of Supervisors approved the creation of a new Claims 
and Judgment Revolving Fund from which the City 
Attorney could directly pay claims or judgments against 
the City (File 97-90-2) not exceeding $5,000. This 
procedure enables the City Attorney's Office to 
completely handle these claims without requiring the 
Controller's certification of each of these payments. 

At the same time, the Board of Supervisors approved 
legislation (Ordinance 66-90; File 97-90-1) permitting the 
City Attorney or a staff member designated by the City 
Attorney to settle unlitigated claims not to exceed $5,000 
without the approval of the head of the department or the 
board or commission in charge of the department. As 
part of this legislation, the Board of Supervisors included 
a one year sunset clause in order to provide a six month 
test and evaluation period for the legislation. The 
current legislation will expire on February 22, 1991. The 
proposed legislation (File 97-90-1.1) would delete the 

HOARD OF SIIPKKVISOHS 
BUDGET ANALYST 



■2- 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

February 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

sunset clause for unlitigated claims not exceeding $5,000 
and make this legislation permanent. 

In April, 1990, the Board of Supervisors approved 
legislation (File 97-90-15) which also enabled the City 
Attorney's Office to pay litigated claims not to exceed 
$5,000 from the Claims and Judgment Revolving Fund. 
However, in contrast to unlitigated claims, this litigated 
claims legislation still required the involvement and 
written approval of the department head and the Chief 
Administrative Officer (CAO) or the appropriate board 
or commission. The proposed ordinance (File 97-91-4) 
would amend this existing legislation to delete the 
written approval of the department head and the CAO or 
appropriate board or commission. This proposed 
change would result in the same procedures for both 
unlitigated and litigated claims not to exceed $5,000 
handled by the City Attorney's Office. 

As is the current practice, both of the proposed 
ordinances require that the City Attorney continue to 
provide monthly reports to each City department and 
commission and the Board of Supervisors identifying 
each claim amount demanded, the amount paid, the 
nature of the incident that gave rise to the claim and the 
City department involved. 

Comments: 1. Regarding the unlitigated claims not to exceed $5,000, 

Mr. Ray King of the City Attorney's Office reports that 
for the six month test period between April 1 and 
September 30, 1990, the City Attorney processed the 
following number and amounts of monthly claims: 





Number

76,356 


September 


107 


62.24 


66,794 



Total 934 79.18 $585,080 

As reflected above, during this six month test period, it 
took an average of 79.18 days, to process each unlitigated 
claim from the day the claim was received by the City 
until the day the City Attorney paid the claim. Mr. King 

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS 
BUDGET ANALYST 



-3- 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

February 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

reports that prior to the current legislation, claims were 
taking an average of 180 days to process. This reflects an 
average reduction of approximately 101 days, or 56 
percent. 

2. Regarding the litigated claims not to exceed $5,000, 
Mr. King reports that between April 1 and September 30, 
1990, the City Attorney processed the following number 
and amounts of monthly claims: 





Number

August

16,458 


September

Total 42 $116,311 

Since each of these claims is subject to litigation, the 
amount of time to process these claims varies 
considerably and were not part of the six month test. 

3. Mr. King further advises that the 42 litigated claims 
identified above were for the following City departments:

Total 42 $116,311 

4. It should be noted that the City Attorney handles all 
City department claims, except for the Public Utilities 
Commission (MUNI, Hetch and Water), the Port and the 
Airport. Each of these departments have separate 
revolving funds from which claims are paid directly.

5. In FY 1989-90, a total of 3,008 claims were filed with 
the City Attorney's Office. During the course of the year, 
these claims were either denied, paid or litigated. A 
breakdown by City departments of these 3,008 claims 
filed in 1989-90 are as follows: 

Number 
Department of Claims 

Police 1,679 

Public Works 580 

Recreation & Park 180 

Sheriff 163 

Public Health 136 

Fire 80 

All other Departments 190 

Total 3,008 

6. Mr. King had previously reported to the Board of 
Supervisors that the implementation of the unlitigated 
claims not exceeding $5,000 legislation which eliminated 
the approval process through the various City 
departments could result in the elimination of one 1424 
Clerk Typist position in the City Attorney's Office due to 
the reduced amount of time required to process these 
small claims. A comparison of the fiscal year 1989-90 
and fiscal year 1990-91 Annual Salary Ordinance for the 
City Attorney's office indicates a reduction of one 1424 
Clerk Typist position in the Department's overall 
positions. Furthermore, Mr. King advises that one of the 
other Bureau of Claims full-time clerical positions has 
been reduced to part-time. 

7. Mr. King advises that the City is able to save 
additional money on individual claims if they can be 
reviewed promptly and paid expeditiously because many 
claimants would rather accept a lesser amount in cash 
than to wait several months for their money or to go to 
court. 

8. The Police, Fire and Recreation and Park 
Commissions, the Department of Public Works, the 
Department of Public Health and the Sheriff supported 
the previous legislation regarding the unlitigated claims 
not exceeding $5,000 and agreed to waive their approval 
authority for such claims, with the caveat that if the new 
process was not satisfactory the approval of such claims 
would be returned to the appropriate departments and

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee

commissions. These City departments seem to agree 
that for unlitigated claims the current procedure is 
working effectively and should be continued. 

9. In addition, the Police and Fire Commissions, the 
Department of Public Works and the Department of 
Public Health have also submitted letters supporting the 
proposed legislation waiving their written approval 
authority for litigated claims not exceeding $5,000. 
However, the Sheriff has indicated that he is opposed to 
the proposed legislation. In addition, the Recreation and 
Park Commission's Finance Committee has 
recommended to the full Commission, which is 
scheduled to meet on February 21, 1991, that the 
proposed legislation be amended to (1) require that the 
City Attorney inform departments of all pending 
litigated settlements so that the departments have the 
opportunity to present any objections to such settlements 
and to (2) provide for automatic reconsideration of the 
proposed legislation by the Board of Supervisors in the 
event that individual departments are held accountable 
for liability claims expenditures. 

The Claims and Judgment Revolving Fund, from which 
all of these claims under $5,000 are paid by the City 
Attorney's Office, are contained in a City-wide 
Controller's account. These funds are not currently 
budgeted by individual departments. 

It should also be noted that although the Department of 
Public Works (DPW) supports the proposed legislation, 
DPVV has requested that the City Attorney confer with 
DPW before the litigated settlements are made. 

Recommendations: 1. Approve the proposed ordinance (File 97-90-1.1) to 

remove the Sunset Clause for the City Attorney to 
continue to settle unlitigated claims not exceeding $5,000 
without the approval of the head of the department or the 
board or commission in charge of the department.

2. Approval of the proposed ordinance (File 97-91-4) to 
authorize the City Attorney to settle litigation not 
exceeding $5,000, without the approval of the Chief 
Administrative Officer or the board or commission in 
charge of the department, is a policy decision for the 
Board of Supervisors.

Item 17 - File 165-91-1 

This item is a hearing to consider which requested management 
audits and special projects should be performed by the Budget Analyst. 

The attachment lists those management audits and special 
projects which have been assigned to the Budget Analyst, but to date 
have not been started. The attachment identifies the subject of each 
assignment, the requesting Supervisor, the date the request was made 
and a preliminary estimate of the number of hours and cost for each 
assignment. 

The indicated estimates of hours and costs for the requested 
management audits were based on reviews which would be detailed and 
comprehensive in nature, covering all aspects of the departments or 
functions that would be audited. In some cases, it may be the desire of 
the Board to specify a modified scope of the management audit, or 
specific audit objectives, that could significantly alter the estimated 
costs. Should the Board specify such changes, our cost estimates would 
change accordingly. In cases where the management audit were 
directed to specific objectives or areas of inquiry that would reduce the 
scope of the review, the costs would decrease. 

The Budget Analyst would of course provide the Board with 
estimates of costs and time requirements for any new audit subjects not 
specified on the attached list. 

Once the Board of Supervisors selects specific projects for the 
Budget Analyst to conduct, the Budget Analyst will prepare a task plan, 
and more precise time and cost requirements for each of the selected 
management audits and special assignments. In order to assure 
compliance with the audit objectives of the Board of Supervisors, we 
would recommend that, for major audits involving a substantial 
number of staff hours, the Board could initially authorize a small 
number of staff hours for a pre -audit survey of the subject department 
in order to permit detailed specification of audit objectives, tasks and 
staff hours for further review by the Board of Supervisors.

SUBJECT: February 26, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee 
Meeting. 



Item 8 - File 89-91-1 

1. The proposed resolution would authorize thirteen employees from 10 
departments, in the 1823 Senior Administrative Analyst classification to enroll in 
the State Disability Insurance (SDI) Program. The cost of SDI coverage would be 
paid by the employee through normal payroll deductions. The proposed 
legislation would not involve significant cost to the City as the Controller's 
payroll/personnel system is programmed to include this deduction. 

2. SDI pays disability benefits to employees who suffer a non-industrial 
injury or illness. SDI-eligible employees have been paying into the SDI system 
since July 1, 1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1.0 percent of the first 
$31,767 of gross salary for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While 
SDI coverage is mandatory for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in 
the SDI program, it is not mandatory that employee classifications which are not 
represented by a bargaining unit be included in the SDI program unless a 
majority of employees within the classification requests coverage. 

3. The Employee Relations Division (ERD) reports that thirteen of 25 
employees in the 1823 Senior Administrative Analyst classification have requested 
inclusion in the SDI program. 

Recommendation 

Approve the proposed resolution. 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

February 26, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 9 - File 89-91-2 

1. The proposed resolution would authorize one employee in the 4349 Real 
Estate Director, Treasurer-Tax Collector classification to enroll in the State 
Disability Insurance (SDI) Program. The cost of SDI coverage would be paid by the 
employee through normal payroll deductions. The proposed legislation would not 
involve significant cost to the City as the Controller's payroll/personnel system is 
programmed to include this deduction. 

2. SDI pays disability benefits to employees who suffer a non-industrial 
injury or illness. SDI-eligible employees have been paying into the SDI system 
since July 1, 1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1.0 percent of the first 
$31,767 of gross salary for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While 
SDI coverage is mandatory for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in 
the SDI program, it is not mandatory that employee classifications which are not 
represented by a bargaining unit be included in the SDI program unless a 
majority of employees within the classification requests coverage. 

3. The Employee Relations Division (ERD) reports that it received a letter 
from the sole employee in the 4349 Real Estate Director, Treasurer-Tax Collector 
classification requesting inclusion in the SDI program. 

Recommendation 

Approve the proposed resolution.

1. The proposed resolution would authorize two employees in the 2810 
Principal Disease Control Investigator, Department of Health, Central Office 
classification to enroll in the State Disability Insurance (SDI) Program. The cost of 
SDI coverage would be paid by these employees through normal payroll deductions. 
The proposed legislation would not involve significant cost to the City as the 
Controller's payroll/personnel system is programmed to include this deduction. 

2. SDI pays disability benefits to employees who suffer a non-industrial 
injury or illness. SDI-eligible employees have been paying into the SDI system 
since July 1, 1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1.0 percent of the first $31,767 
of gross salary for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While SDI 
coverage is mandatory for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in the 
SDI program, it is not mandatory that employee classifications which are not 
represented by a bargaining unit be included in the SDI program unless a majority 
of employees within the classification requests coverage. 

3. The Employee Relations Division (ERD) reports that it received a letter 
from the two employees in the 2810 Principal Control Investigator classification 
requesting inclusion in the SDI program. 

Recommendation 

Approve the proposed resolution.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

February 26, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 11 - File 165-91-1 

Note: This item was continued at the February 12, 1991 Administration and 
Oversight Committee meeting. 

This item is a hearing to consider which requested management audits 
and special projects should be performed by the Budget Analyst. 

The attachment identifies those management audits and special projects 
which have been assigned to the Budget Analyst by current Supervisors that are 
still interested in the timely completion of these projects. The attachment 
identifies the subject of each assignment, the requesting Supervisor, the date the 
request was made and a preliminary estimate of the number of hours and cost for 
each assignment. 

On February 14, 1991, Mr. John Taylor, the Clerk of the Board, issued a 
memorandum to all members of the Board of Supervisors regarding any 
suggestions for additional work or preferences for work for the Budget Analyst on 
management audits and special assignments. As of the writing of this report, 
Mr. Taylor reports that he has not received any new requests from any 
Supervisors. 

On the attachment, the indicated estimates of hours and costs for the 
requested management audits were based on reviews which would be detailed 
and comprehensive in nature, covering all aspects of the departments or 
functions that would be audited. In some cases, it may be the desire of the Board to 
specify a modified scope of the management audit, or specific audit objectives, that 
could significantly alter the estimated costs. Should the Board specify such 
changes, our cost estimates would change accordingly. In cases where the 
management audit was directed to specific objectives or areas of inquiry that 
would reduce the scope of the review, the costs would decrease. The Budget 
Analyst would of course provide the Board with estimates of costs and time 
requirements for any new audit subjects that are identified. 

Once the Board of Supervisors selects specific projects for the Budget 
Analyst to conduct, the Budget Analyst will prepare a task plan, and more precise 
time and cost requirements for each of the selected management audits and 
special assignments. In order to assure compliance with the audit objectives of 
the Board of Supervisors, we would recommend that, for major audits involving a 
substantial number of staff hours, the Board could initially authorize a small 
number of staff hours for a pre-audit survey of the subject department in order to 
permit detailed specification of audit objectives, tasks and staff hours for further 
review by the Board of Supervisors. 

Mr. Taylor will be present at the February 26, 1991 Administration and 
Oversight Committee Meeting to further discuss this item with the Committee.

Pending Requests of Supervisor Jim Gonzalez 



1. Housing Authority Summary of Grants $ 1,200- 3,000 
Supervisor Gonzalez, October 11, 1990; 20-50 hours. 

"summary of grants received from Federal Government for tenant improvements 
in the last two years, and document expenditures." 

[Clerk's comment: The Housing Authority impacts many poor citizens and is an 
appropriate subject for review] 

2. Management Audit of the Community Mental Health Services $ 91,500-122,000 
Supervisor Gonzalez, November 18, 1987; 1,500-2,000 hours. 

"determine the delivery of services for the City's Hispanic population in the following 
areas: staffing patterns; management recruitment, and organizational structure; 
proportion of funding through grants, contracts, and civil service units; and valuation 
with recommendations to the Board on how to remedy and inequities in the delivery of 
the above mentioned services." 

[Clerk's comment: This could use 51% of the Board's money available for new 1991 
work by the budget analyst. The scope of the project could be scaled down. Or 
perhaps the new Director of Health could be requested to provide the desired 
information, evaluation, and solution.] 

Pending Requests of Supervisor Willie B. Kennedy 

3. Management Audit, EEO Unit, Civil Service $ 49,000- 61,000 
Supervisor Kennedy, February 19, 1987; 800-1,000 hours. 

[Clerk's comment: This project could use 26% of the funds available for new work by 
the budget analyst. Perhaps the Human Rights Commission staff should be asked to 
perform a review of the Civil Service EEO unit operations]. 

4. Management Audit of the District Attorney $ 91,500-122,000 
Supervisor Kennedy, October 28, 1987; 1,500-2,000 hours. 

"determine whether resources are being utilized properly." 

[Clerk's comment: This project could use 51% of the funds available for 1991 new 
work by the budget analyst. The project is defined very broadly and the need is not 
clear at this time.] 

5. Management Audit of Internal Audit Division, Controller $ 49,000- 61,000 
Supervisor Kennedy, August 10, 1989; 800-1,000 hours. 

[Clerk's comment: This could use about 26% of funds available for new 1991 work by 
the budget analyst. There may be greater needs.]

Attachment 
Page 2 of 2 

6. Survey and Analysis of Temporary Employees $ 3,000- 6,100 
Supervisor Kennedy, November 14, 1990; 50-100 hours. 

"currently working throughout the City, how many are being paid at the first 
salary step and how long these employees have been employed as temporary as 
needed." 

[Clerk's comment: Because of the tendency of city departments to create temporary 
positions and pressure from the state to avoid this, a periodic review of the number of 
temporary employees is appropriate to protect the integrity of the civil service 
system.] 

7. Cost Analysis of Free Flow vs. Pump-Style Faucets $ 1,200- 3,000 
Supervisor Kennedy, November 21, 1990; 20-50 hours. 

[Clerk's comment: This is a relatively small project which might result in proof that 
a relatively small expenditure will save a significant amount of water in this drought 
year.] 

Pending Request of Supervisor Doris M. Ward 

8. Bond Counsel Contracts Analysis $ 6,100-12,200 
Supervisor Ward, June 1, 1988; 100-200 hours. 

"in the participation of minority and women owned firms, dollar amounts of 
contracts (both in the amounts managed and administrative costs), and actions 
taken within the past twelve months to include MBE/WBE efforts." 

[Clerk's comment: This information is important. It could probably be provided by 
the staff of the CAO which should have this information readily available.]

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

February 26, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 12 -File 179-91-1 

The proposed resolution would request the City Attorney to act as amicus 
curiae (friend of the court) for San Francisco residents who are lesbian or gay, 
who serve in the military during Operation Desert Storm, and who are dismissed 
from military services subsequent to the termination of hostilities on the basis of 
their sexual orientation. An amicus curiae is a written brief by an interested 
individual or entity who is not a party in the action. 

According to the proposed resolution, an American general announced last 
week that lesbian and gay soldiers serving in Operation Desert Storm would not be 
dismissed on the basis of their sexual orientation during the hostilities, but would 
be dismissed after the hostilities have terminated. 

Comments 

1 . The City Attorney can act as amicus curiae for these lesbian or gay San 
Francisco residents through written briefs addressed to the court where the legal 
action is taking place. Ms. Martie Moore of the City Attorney's Office reports that 
the cost to the City to prepare the proposed amicus curiae briefs would vary with 
the facts and complexity of the case(s) as well as the number of cases to be brought 
before a court. 

2. As of the writing of this report, the number of San Francisco residents 
who are lesbian or gay military personnel serving during Operation Desert Storm 
and who would potentially avail themselves of the proposed amicus curiae briefs 
cannot be determined. 

Recommendation 

The proposed resolution is a policy matter for the Board of Supervisors.

FROM: Budget Analyst -rec 

SUBJECT: March 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 10 - File 89-91-4 

1. The proposed resolution would authorize four employees in the A922 
Electronic Instrumentation Assistant Supervisor classification, Department of 
Public Works, Bureau of Water Pollution Control and one employee in the 2403 
Forensic Laboratory Technician classification, Department of the Medical 
Examiner to enroll in the State Disability Insurance (SDI) Program. The cost of 
SDI coverage would be paid by the employees through normal payroll deductions. 
The proposed legislation would not involve significant cost to the City as the 
Controller's payroll/personnel system is programmed to include this deduction. 

2. SDI pays disability benefits to employees who suffer a non-industrial 
injury or illness. SDI-eligible employees have been paying into the SDI system 
since July 1, 1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1.0 percent of the first 
$31,767 of gross salary for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While 
SDI coverage is mandatory for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in 
the SDI program, it is not mandatory that employee classifications which are not 
represented by a bargaining unit be included in the SDI program unless a 
majority of employees within the classification requests coverage. 

3. The Employee Relations Division (ERD) reports that it received a letter 
from all four employees in the A922 Electronic Instrumentation Assistant 
Supervisor classification and the one employee in the 2403 Forensic Laboratory 
Technician classification requesting inclusion in the SDI program. 

Recommendation 

Approve the proposed resolution. 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

March 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 11 - File 106-91-1 

1. This item is a hearing to consider the Civil Service Commission staff 
report on salary standardization for Fiscal Year 1991-92 and the Salary and Wage 
Survey, Preliminary Staff Recommendations. The Salary and Wage Survey 
presents preliminary computations of Fiscal Year 1991-92 pay rates for the City's 
miscellaneous employees in accordance with the provisions of Charter Sections 
8.400, 8.401 and 8.407. The Civil Service Commission will submit revised 
computations later this month. The final staff recommended salaries and wages 
for 1991-92 will be subsequently incorporated into an ordinance to be submitted to 
the Board of Supervisors. 

Salary Standardization Procedure 

2. Charter Section 8.401 establishes the general guidelines for the Civil 
Service Salary Standardization procedure. This Section provides that 
miscellaneous employees be paid ". . . in accord with the generally prevailing 
rates of wages for like service and working conditions in private employment or in 
other comparable governmental organizations in this state." Section 8.407 
provides a set procedure and a mathematical formula by which wages for 
employees covered by Section 8.401 will be set. The procedure requires that data 
on wages paid for comparable employment be collected from six Bay Area 
counties (Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda and Contra 
Costa), from the ten most populous cities in those counties, from other public 
jurisdictions in the Bay Area (including the State and Federal governments), and 
from the private sector. Should Civil Service staff determine that insufficient data 
exist, out-of-Bay Area data may be acquired, provided that the jurisdiction 
surveyed employs 3,000 or more persons. 

3. The wage and salary survey is based on "benchmark" classes which are 
considered to be key classes within occupational groupings. There are currently 
53 benchmarks. Survey data are collected for positions judged comparable to the 
benchmark classes in other jurisdictions and in the private sector. If the 
prevailing rate wage, as determined by the survey, is above the wage paid by the 
City, a wage increase for the affected class is warranted; if the prevailing wage is 
below that paid by the City, no wage increase is warranted. In general, if the 
wages of a benchmark class are recommended for an increase, all classes tied to 
that benchmark will be recommended for a corresponding increase. Similarly, if 
the wages of a benchmark class are not recommended for an increase, none of the 
classes tied to the benchmark class will be recommended for a wage increase.

Internal Adjustments 

4. After the preliminary salary survey recommendations are released by 
the Civil Service Commission, notices are distributed to employees and employee 
groups regarding the procedure for requesting adjustments to the preliminary 
recommendations for specific classes within designated benchmarks. These 
"internal adjustment" requests are analyzed by the Commission. Where 
appropriate, internal adjustments for specific classes are incorporated into the 
final salary recommendations. The amended recommendations are made 
available at a public hearing after which they are submitted to the Board of 
Supervisors. No internal adjustments are included in the preliminary salary 
recommendations, but such adjustments will be included in a later March update 
of the preliminary salary recommendations. 

Updating Procedure 

5. The Commission's preliminary survey recommendations were based on 
information collected before January 1, 1991. By mid-March, the Commission 
will finish updating the survey. This process consists of determining the 
appropriate salary for each position as of July 1, 1991 based upon updated salary 
schedules in other jurisdictions. The results form the basis of the Commission's 
updated salary recommendations. 

6. The Commission's update of preliminary salary recommendations is 
made each year in an effort to comply with the Charter's provisions (Sections 
8.401 and 8.407) that salaries be set in accordance with the "prevailing rates" in 
other jurisdictions. The Charter does not require a survey update. However, for 
purposes of setting the salaries for City employees, the Civil Service Commission 
defines "prevailing rates" as that rate effective July 1 of the fiscal year in other 
jurisdictions which corresponds with the fiscal year for which the salaries are to 
be set in San Francisco. Using this definition, the preliminary survey must be 
updated after the July 1 salaries in other jurisdictions have been determined. In 
an opinion dated February 16, 1977, the City Attorney concurred with the concept 
of using July 1 salaries as the "prevailing rate" for purposes of setting San 
Francisco salaries. Historically, the updating procedures have significantly 
increased the cost of the Commission's preliminary salary recommendations. 

7. The Civil Service Commission reports that the preliminary wage and 
salary recommendations represent an average salary increase of approximately 
1.4 percent for the approximately 22,071 budgeted, miscellaneous positions. The 
highest recommended increase is for the 8214 Parking Control Officer benchmark 
(affecting 402 positions) with a recommended increase of 7.0 percent.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

March 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

8. The Controller has estimated the cost increase resulting from the 
recommended wage and salary increases based on (a) the preliminary Civil 
Service Wage and Salary Survey for 1991-92 and (b) the number of filled positions. 
The Controller estimates that increased salaries and related fringe benefits 
(retirement, social security, and unemployment tax) will cost $12,986,523. Of this 
amount, the cost to the General Fund is estimated to be approximately $9.5 
million. 

Comm^nf. 

In its report of February 20, 1991, the Mayor's Office, the Board of 
Supervisors Budget Analyst, and the Controller's Office projected a shortfall of up 
to $158.3 million for Fiscal Year 1991-92. Included in the projected shortfall of 
$158.3 million is an estimate for General Fund salary standardization of $71.2 
million (total estimated cost of $97.5 million), which is based on an average salary 
increase of 5.5 percent. The estimated increase of $12,986,523 for salaries and 
related fringe benefits, as estimated by the Controller, represents the preliminary 
projected salary standardization cost for miscellaneous employees. The final 
salary standardization estimate of $97.5 million includes estimated salary 
increases not only for miscellaneous employees but also estimated salary 
increases for nurses, MUNI platform employees and uniformed employees (e.g. 
Police and Fire). 

Recommendation 

Continue the item pending completion of the final salary and wage survey 
and submittal to the Board of Supervisors of the final Fiscal Year 1991-92 salary 
and wage rates recommended by the Civil Service Commission.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

March 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 12 - File 165-91-1 

Note; This item was continued at the February 26, 1991 Administration and 
Oversight Committee meeting. 

This item is a hearing to consider which requested management audits 
and special projects should be performed by the Budget Analyst. 

The attachment identifies those management audits and special projects 
which have been assigned to the Budget Analyst by current Supervisors that are 
still interested in the timely completion of these projects. The attachment 
identifies the subject of each assignment, the requesting Supervisor, the date the 
request was made and a preliminary estimate of the number of hours and cost for 
each assignment. 

On February 14, 1991, Mr. John Taylor, the Clerk of the Board, issued a 
memorandum to all members of the Board of Supervisors regarding any 
suggestions for additional work or preferences for work for the Budget Analyst on 
management audits and special assignments. As of the writing of this report, 
Mr. Taylor reports that he has not received any new requests from any 
Supervisors. 

On the attachment, the indicated estimates of hours and costs for the 
requested management audits were based on reviews which would be detailed 
and comprehensive in nature, covering all aspects of the departments or 
functions that would be audited. In some cases, it may be the desire of the Board to 
specify a modified scope of the management audit, or specific audit objectives, that 
could significantly alter the estimated costs. Should the Board specify such 
changes, our cost estimates would change accordingly. In cases where the 
management audit was directed to specific objectives or areas of inquiry that 
would reduce the scope of the review, the costs would decrease. The Budget 
Analyst would of course provide the Board with estimates of costs and time 
requirements for any new audit subjects that are identified. 

Once the Board of Supervisors selects specific projects for the Budget 
Analyst to conduct, the Budget Analyst will prepare a task plan, and more precise 
time and cost requirements for each of the selected management audits and 
special assignments. In order to assure compliance with the audit objectives of 
the Board of Supervisors, we would recommend that, for major audits involving a 
substantial number of staff hours, the Board could initially authorize a small 
number of staff hours for a pre-audit survey of the subject department in order to 
permit detailed specification of audit objectives, tasks and staff hours for further 
review by the Board of Supervisors.

Pending Requests of Supervisor Jim Gonzalez 

1. Housing Authority Summary of Grants $ 1,200- 3,000 
Supervisor Gonzalez, October 11, 1990; 20-50 hours. 

"summary of grants received from Federal Government for tenant improvements 
in the last two years, and document expenditures." 

[Clerk's comment: The Housing Authority impacts many poor citizens and is an 
appropriate subject for review] 

2. Management Audit of the Community Mental Health Services $ 91,500-122,000 
Supervisor Gonzalez, November 18, 1987; 1,500-2,000 hours. 

"determine the delivery of services for the City's Hispanic population in the following 
areas: staffing patterns; management recruitment, and organizational structure; 
proportion of funding through grants, contracts, and civil service units; and valuation 
with recommendations to the Board on how to remedy and inequities in the delivery of 
the above mentioned services." 

[Clerk's comment: This could use 51% of the Board's money available for new 1991 
work by the budget analyst. The scope of the project could be scaled down. Or 
perhaps the new Director of Health could be requested to provide the desired 
information, evaluation, and solution.] 

Pending Requests of Supervisor Willie B. Kennedy 

3. Management Audit, EEO Unit, Civil Service $49,000-61,000 
Supervisor Kennedy, February 19, 1987; 800-1,000 hours. 

[Clerk's comment: This project could use 26% of the funds available for new work by 
the budget analyst. Perhaps the Human Rights Commission staff should be asked to 
perform a review of the Civil Service EEO unit operations]. 

4. Management Audit of the District Attorney $ 91,500-122,000 
Supervisor Kennedy, October 28, 1987; 1,500-2,000 hours. 

"determine whether resources are being utilized properly." 

[Clerk's comment: This project could use 51% of the funds available for 1991 new 
work by the budget analyst. The project is defined very broadly and the need is not 
clear at this time.] 

5. Management Audit of Internal Audit Division, Controller $ 49,000- 61,000 
Supervisor Kennedy, August 10, 1989; 800-1,000 hours. 

[Clerk's comment: This could use about 26% of funds available for new 1991 work by 
the budget analyst. There may be greater needs.]

"currently working throughout the City, how many are being paid at the first 
salary step and how long these employees have been employed as temporary as 
needed." 

[Clerk's comment: Because of the tendency of city departments to create temporary 
positions and pressure from the state to avoid this, a periodic review of the number of 
temporary employees is appropriate to protect the integrity of the civil service 
system.] 

Cost Analysis of Free Flow vs. Pump-Style Faucets $ 1,200- 3,000

Item 11 - File 106-91-1 



REVISED 



1. This item is a hearing to consider the Civil Service Commission staff 
report on salary standardization for Fiscal Year 1991-92 and the Salary and Wage 
Survey, Preliminary Staff Recommendations. The Salary and Wage Survey 
presents preliminary computations of Fiscal Year 1991-92 pay rates for the City's 
miscellaneous employees in accordance with the provisions of Charter Sections 
8.400, 8.401 and 8.407. The Civil Service Commission will submit revised 
computations later this month. The final staff recommended salaries and wages 
for 1991-92 will be subsequently incorporated into an ordinance to be submitted to 
the Board of Supervisors. 

Salary StandarrH rat ion Procedure 

2. Charter Section 8.401 establishes the general guidelines for the Civil 
Service Salary Standardization procedure. This Section provides that 
miscellaneous employees be paid ". . .in accord with the generally prevailing 
rates of wages for like service and working conditions in private employment or in 
other comparable governmental organizations in this state." Section 8.407 
provides a set procedure and a mathematical formula by which wages for 
employees covered by Section 8.401 will be set. The procedure requires that data 
on wages paid for comparable employment be collected from six Bay Area 
counties (Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda and Contra 
Costa), from the ten most populous cities in those counties, from other public 
jurisdictions in the Bay Area (including the State and Federal governments), and 
from the private sector. Should Civil Service staff determine that insufficient data 
exist, out-of-Bay Area data may be acquired, provided that the jurisdiction 
surveyed employs 3,000 or more persons. 

3. The wage and salary survey is based on "benchmark" classes which are 
considered to be key classes within occupational groupings. There are currently 
53 benchmarks. Survey data are collected for positions judged comparable to the 
benchmark classes in other jurisdictions and in the private sector. If the 
prevailing rate wage, as determined by the survey, is above the wage paid by the 
City, a wage increase for the affected class is warranted; if the prevailing wage is 
below that paid by the City, no wage increase is warranted. In general, if the 
wages of a benchmark class are recommended for an increase, all classes tied to 
that benchmark will be recommended for a corresponding increase. Similarly, if 
the wages of a benchmark class are not recommended for an increase, none of the 
classes tied to the benchmark class will be recommended for a wage increase.

Internal Adjustments 

4. After the preliminary salary survey recommendations are released by 
the Civil Service Commission, notices are distributed to employees and employee 
groups regarding the procedure for requesting adjustments to the preliminary 
recommendations for specific classes within designated benchmarks. These 
"internal adjustment" requests are analyzed by the Commission. Where 
appropriate, internal adjustments for specific classes are incorporated into the 
final salary recommendations. The amended recommendations are made 
available at a public hearing after which they are submitted to the Board of 
Supervisors. No internal adjustments are included in the preliminary salary 
recommendations, but such adjustments will be included in a later March update 
of the preliminary salary recommendations. 

Updating Procedure 

5. The Commission's preliminary survey recommendations were based on 
information collected before January 1, 1991. By mid-March, the Commission 
will finish updating the survey. This process consists of determining the 
appropriate salary for each position as of July 1, 1991 based upon updated salary 
schedules in other jurisdictions. The results form the basis of the Commission's 
updated salary recommendations. 

6. The Commission's update of preliminary salary recommendations is 
made each year in an effort to comply with the Charter's provisions (Sections 
8.401 and 8.407) that salaries be set in accordance with the "prevailing rates" in 
other jurisdictions. The Charter does not require a survey update. However, for

Francisco salaries. Historically, the updating procedures have significantly 
increased the cost of the Commission's preliminary salary recommendations. 

7. The Civil Service Commission staff reports that the final wage and 
salary recommendations represent an average salary increase of approximately 
5.6 percent for the approximately 22,077 budgeted, miscellaneous positions. The 
highest recommended increase is for the 8214 Parking Control Officer benchmark 
(affecting 402 positions) with a recommended increase of 11.5 percent.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

March 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

8. The Controller has estimated the cost increase resulting from the 
recommended wage and salary increases based on (a) the preliminary Civil 
Service Wage and Salary Survey for 1991-92 and (b) the number of filled positions. 
The Controller estimates that increased salaries and related fringe benefits 
(retirement, social security, and unemployment tax) will cost $12,986,523 for 
miscellaneous employees. Of this amount, the cost to the General Fund is 
estimated to be approximately $9.5 million. 

Comments 

1. In its report of February 20, 1991, the Mayor's Office, the Board of 
Supervisors Budget Analyst, and the Controller's Office projected a shortfall of up 
to $158.3 million for Fiscal Year 1991-92. Included in the projected shortfall of 
$158.3 million is an estimate for General Fund salary standardization of $71.2 
million (total estimated cost of $97.5 million), which is based on an average salary 
increase of 5.5 percent. The salary standardization estimate of $97.5 million 
includes estimated salary increases not only for miscellaneous employees but also 
estimated salary increases for nurses, MUNI platform employees and uniformed 
employees (e.g. Police and Fire). 

2. The Budget Analyst has been advised that the Civil Service Commission 
staff will present the final report on salary standardization for 1991-92 at the Civil 
Service Commission meeting of March 11, 1991. As previously noted, according to 
the just released staff report, the final salary recommendations for miscellaneous 
employees represent an average salary increase of 5.6% for approximately 22,077 
budgeted miscellaneous positions. According to Mr. John Madden of the 
Controller's Office, based on the 1990-91 budgeted number of positions, an average 
salary increase of 5.6% for miscellaneous employees would cost $63.5 million, of 
which $46.4 million would be the cost of the General Fund.

SUBJECT: March 26, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 8 - File 89-91-5 

1. The proposed resolution would authorize eleven employees from five 
departments, in the 1811 Management Information System Specialist I classification 
to enroll in the State Disability Insurance (SDI) Program. The cost of SDI coverage 
would be paid by the employee through normal payroll deductions. The proposed 
legislation would not involve significant cost to the City as the Controller's 
payroll/personnel system is programmed to include this deduction. 

2. SDI pays disability benefits to employees who suffer a non-industrial injury 
or illness. SDI-eligible employees have been paying into the SDI system since July 1, 
1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1.0 percent of the first $31,767 of gross salary 
for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While SDI coverage is mandatory 
for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in the SDI program, it is not 
mandatory that employee classifications which are not represented by a bargaining 
unit be included in the SDI program unless a majority of employees within the 
classification requests coverage. 

3. The Employee Relations Division (ERD) reports that all employees in the 1811 
Management Information System Specialist I classification have requested inclusion 
in the SDI program. 

Recomm endation 

Approve the proposed resolution.

Item 9 - File 89-91-6 

1. The proposed resolution would authorize one employee in the A-032 
Traffic Sign Manager classification, Department of Parking and Traffic, to enroll 
in the State Disability Insurance (SDI) Program. The cost of SDI coverage would 
be paid by the employee through normal payroll deductions. The proposed 
legislation would not involve significant cost to the City as the Controller's 
payroll/personnel system is programmed to include this deduction. 

2. SDI pays disability benefits to employees who suffer a non-industrial 
injury or illness. SDI-eligible employees have been paying into the SDI system 
since July 1, 1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1.0 percent of the first 
$31,767 of gross salary for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While 
SDI coverage is mandatory for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in 
the SDI program, it is not mandatory that employee classifications which are not 
represented by a bargaining unit be included in the SDI program unless a 
majority of employees within the classification requests coverage. 

3. The Employee Relations Division (ERD) reports that it received a 
request from the sole employee in the A-032 Traffic Sign Manager classification, 
Department of Parking and Traffic requesting inclusion in the SDI program. 

Approve the proposed resolution.

PUBLIC L1SPARY 

TO: ^ Administration and Oversight Committee 

FROM: Budget Analyst ,- c r\c 

SUBJECT: April 9, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 1 - File 165-91-1 

Note: This item was continued at the March 12, 1991 Administration and 
Oversight Committee meeting. 

This item is a hearing to consider which requested management audits 
and special projects should be performed by the Budget Analyst. 

At the March 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee meeting, 
Mr. John Taylor, the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, was requested to present 
an overall procedure to the Administration and Oversight Committee for 
allocating the Budget Analyst's assignments for management audits and special 
projects. Mr. Taylor will be present at the April 9, 1991 Administration and 
Oversight Committee Meeting to further discuss this item with the Committee. 

Comments 

The 1991 contract between the Board of Supervisors and the Budget Analyst 
set aside 22.7 percent, or $261,797 of the total contract for management audits and 
special projects, to be designated by vote of the Board of Supervisors. To date, the 
Budget Analyst has completed a management audit of the City's Purchasing 
Department, a management audit of the Police Department's 911 System in 
conjunction with the Controller's Office and a feasibility study of the 1994 World 
Soccer Cup in 1991. The total 1991 cost to complete these three studies was $36, 363. 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

April 9, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

A motion adopted by the Board of Supervisors on March 18, 1991 directed the 
Budget Analyst to conduct an independent review and verification of the data used 
for the Salary Standardization Ordinance for fiscal year 1991-92. The Budget 
Analyst is currently working on this study and projects that the report will be 
completed by April 15, 1991. The cost for this study will be approximately $36,576. 

In addition, a motion adopted by the Board of Supervisors on April 1, 1991 
directed the Budget Analyst to survey programs for senior citizens offered by the 
City and County of San Francisco and private, non-profit providers in San 
Francisco. This study will also categorize the type' of services being provided to the 
elderly and identify the unmet needs and gaps in the system. The Budget Analyst 
estimates that the first phase of the study will be completed by early May and the 
second phase of the study completed by late May, 1991. The total estimated cost for 
this study is $34,138. 

Together, the total cost of these completed and ongoing studies is 
approximately $107,077. Based on the total 1991 Budget Analyst's contractual 
amount of $261,797 allocated for management audits and special projects, 
approximately $154,720 is currently available for additional assignments during 
1991.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

April 23, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 9 - File 100-91-2.2 

This item is a hearing to consider the Board of Supervisors 1991-92 
budget to determine what items can be cut and still maintain its current 
services to the City. 

The Administration and Oversight Committee previously approved the 
Board of Supervisors 1991-92 budget, which was subsequently submitted to the 
full Board. On February 19, 1991, the Board of Supervisors approved an 
amended motion (File 100-91-2) authorizing the Clerk of the Board to file with 
the Controller the Board of Supervisors budget for fiscal year 1991-92, including 
the Office of the Board of Supervisors, the Assessment Appeals Board and the 
Delinquency Prevention Commission. On March 4, 1991, the Board of 
Supervisors approved another amended motion (File 100-91-2.1) authorizing 
the Clerk of the Board to file with the Controller the Board of Supervisors 
budget for fiscal year 1991-92 for the Telecommunications Policy Committee's 
Special Fund for Cable TV Access and Development. The attachment reflects 
the amended Board of Supervisors budget for fiscal year 1991-92, as compared 
with the current 1990-91 budget and the 1989-90 actual expenditures. 

By no later than June 1, 1991 the Mayor's Office will provide the Mayor's 
proposed 1991-92 budget to the Board of Supervisors. The Finance Committee 
will begin public hearings on the Mayor's proposed 1991-92 budget on June 18, 
1991.

Item 6 - File 100-91-2.2 

Note: This item was continued from the April 23, 1991 Administration 
and Oversight Committee Meeting. 

This item is a hearing to consider the Board of Supervisors 1991-92 
budget to determine what items can be cut and still maintain its current 
services to the City. 

The Administration and Oversight Committee previously approved the 
Board of Supervisors 1991-92 budget, which was subsequently submitted to the 
full Board. On February 19, 1991, the Board of Supervisors approved an 
amended motion (File 100-91-2) authorizing the Clerk of the Board to file with 
the Controller the Board of Supervisors budget for fiscal year 1991-92, including 
the Office of the Board of Supervisors, the Assessment Appeals Board and the 
Delinquency Prevention Commission. On March 4, 1991, the Board of 
Supervisors approved another amended motion (File 100-91-2.1) authorizing 
the Clerk of the Board to file with the Controller the Board of Supervisors 
budget for fiscal year 1991-92 for the Telecommunications Policy Committee's 
Special Fund for Cable TV Access and Development. The attachment reflects 
the amended Board of Supervisors budget for fiscal year 1991-92, as compared 
with the current 1990-91 budget and the 1989-90 actual expenditures. 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

May 14, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

By no later than June 1, 1991 the Mayor's Office will provide the Mayor's 
proposed 1991-92 budget to the Board of Supervisors. The Finance Committee 
will begin public hearings on the Mayor's proposed 1991-92 budget on June 18, 
1991.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

May 14, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 



Item 7 - File 103-91-1 

Department 

Item: 



Description: 



Civil Service Commission 

The proposed ordinance would fix, designate, enumerate and 
provide schedules of compensation for persons employed by 
the City and County of San Francisco, the San Francisco 
Community College District and the San Francisco Unified 
School District, whose compensations are subject to the 
provisions of Section 8.403 of the Charter. The proposed 
ordinance would also establish benefits, working schedules, 
conditions of employment and methods of payment, effective 
July 1, 1991. 

1. Charter Section 8.403 requires the Civil Service 
Commission to certify to the Board of Supervisors the highest 
prevailing maximum salary for acute care staff nurses in 
effect on April 15 in the public and private sectors in the 
counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo, San 
Francisco and Santa Clara. The salaries paid to registered 
nurses by San Francisco may not exceed this maximum 
salary level. 

2. The maximum salary level for Registered Nurses certified 
by the Civil Service Commission effective April 15, 1991 is 
$26.02 per hour paid by Stanford University Hospital, which 
represents approximately a seven percent salary increase for 
the Stanford University Nurses. The current three-year 
agreement with the City's nurses covering fiscal year 1990-91 
provides for a top step salary of $24.08 ($50,0S7 annually). The 
maximum salary rate paid by Stanford University of $26.02 
per hour ($54,122 annually), as certified by the Civil Service 
Commission, is $1.94 or approximately 8.1 percent greater 
than the City's 1990-91 top step salary rate of $24.08 per hour. 

3. Charter Section 8.403 also permits the Board of 
Supervisors to provide additional conditions and benefits of 
employment, including health and dental benefits, 
comparable to those provided by the employer used for 
certification of the highest salary. As reported by the Civil 
Service Commission, the maximum contributions for 
Registered Nurses at Stanford University for health and 
dental benefits exceed maximum contributions for San 
Francisco Registered Nurses by $.47 per hour and $.01 per 
hour, respectively.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

May 14, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

4. The City and the Registered Nurses entered into an 
approximately three-year (July, 1989 through April, 1992) 
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). For 1989-90, the 
City's Registered Nurses maximum rate of pay was 
increased to 1.02 percent below the maximum rate of 
compensation paid to Registered Nurses at Stanford 
University Hospital. In accordance with the terms of this 
three-year contract between the Registered Nurses and the 
City, the rate of compensation for 1990-91 was increased to 
1.02 percent below the maximum rate of pay for Registered 
Nurses employed at Stanford University Hospital. As a 
result, the proposed 1991-92 maximum rate of pay for 
Registered Nurses in San Francisco would be $25.75, 1.02 
percent less than the $26.02 per hour maximum rate of pay 
for Registered Nurses at Stanford University Hospital. The 
proposed $25.75 rate of pay represents an approximate 7.0 
percent, or $1.67 per hour, increase over the current $24.08 
rate of pay. 

5. According to Mr. Pat Finney of Civil Service, the following 
six classes would receive the proposed seven percent 
increase: 

2320 Registered Nurse 2328 Nurse Practitioner 

2340 Operating Room Nurse 2330 Anesthetist 

2323 Clinical Nurse Specialist 2830 Public Health Nurse 

All other nursing classes, with the exception of the P103 
Special Nurse, consisting of supervisory positions, would 
receive a nine percent increase. The additional two percent is 
the result of a internal adjustment recommended by the Civil 
Service Commission. In accordance with the MOU, all of 
these represented positions would receive a salary increase if 
this ordinance is approved, irrespective of whether or not 
Fiscal Year 1991-92 Salary Standardization increases are 
approved for miscellaneous employees.

6. However, according to Mr. Edward Gazzano of the 
Department of Public Health, the proposed ordinance shows 
two salary ranges for five unrepresented classes, 2369 
Director of Nurses (LHH), 2370 Director of Nurses (SFGH), 
2394 Central Processing and Distribution Supervisor, 2833 
Public Health Nursing Administrator, and 2836 Director of 
Public Health Nursing. The two salary ranges represent the 
difference between the proposed salaries with and without 
salary standardization for FY 1991-92. These classes would 
not receive an increase if the Salary Standardization 
Ordinance for Miscellaneous employees is ultimately not 
approved. Mr. Gazzano advises that of the five unrepresented 
classes only two budgeted positions are currently filled. 

7. Mr. Gazzano further advises that, for FY 1991-92, the 
proposed ordinance also includes the following changes: 

• A fourth step has been added for the P103 Per Diem 
Special Nurse positions. At the fourth step, a Special 
Nurse would be paid the annual equivalent of $63,345. 
Special Nurses are used as substitutes, as needed. 

• For FY 1991-92, after seven years of continuous service, 
nursing employees would be entitled to four paid longevity 
leave days. In FY 1990-91, nursing employees, with more 
than seven years of continuous service, were entitled to 
three longevity leave days. 

Comments: 1. If the proposed ordinance is approved, these increases in 

salary rates and related benefits for nurses would cost the 
City an estimated $7.1 million, annually, for 1991-92. This 
amount does not include the additional two percent proposed 
for nursing supervisory staff. Mr. John Madden of the 
Controller's Office advises that, as of the writing of this 
report, the Controller's Office has not yet received the final 
salary standardization data from Civil Service staff for the 
nursing classifications. Consequently, the Controller's Office 
was not able to provide a more precise cost estimate of the 
proposed salary standardization for nurses. 

2. According to Mr. Gazzano, nursing employees receive, in 
general, higher levels of fringe benefits than miscellaneous 
employees, including paid health and dental benefits for 
dependents, more salary steps, higher standby pay, and 
higher shift differentials.

DOCUMENTS DEPT.

GAN FRANCISCO 
IC USRAPY 



SUBJECT: June 11, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 
Items 7 - File 195-91-2 



Department: Sheriffs Department 

Item: Resolution describing Federal Court orders in Stone v. City 

and County of San Francisco regarding jail overcrowding 
and approving the long term jail overcrowding plan. 

Description: The City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) signed a 

Consent Decree in May, 1982, in the case of Stone versus 
CCSF. Section XIV of the Consent Decree provides that 
except for weekends and holidays, housing areas of the 
County Jail would not house more than their rated 
capacities. Subsequently, in October, 1988, the Federal Court 
monitoring the Consent Decree ordered that the CCSF would 
be fined $300 per inmate per day for each inmate that 
exceeds the rate of capacity at County Jail Number One. The 
rated inmate capacity is 426. 

On June 25, 1990, the Federal Court ordered the City to 
present to the Court the City's planning process and time 
schedule for the development of a plan to assure that the City 
will continue maintenance of the Court ordered 
requirements at Jail Number One located at the Hall of 
Justice. The proposed resolution would approve the long 
term overcrowding plan developed by the Criminal Justice 
Administrative Croup (CJAG) for submission to the Federal 

Court on June 20. 1991. The CJAG consists of 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

June 11, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

representatives from the various City justice system 
departments, the Mayor's Office and the Department of 
Public Health. CJAG completed the long term jail 
overcrowding plan entitled San Francisco Jail Population 
Management Plan on May 22, 1991. The plan includes 
eleven proposals summarized as follows: 

Proposal 1: Data Program and Jail Population Manager 

Sheriffs Department designates a half-time position as Jail 
Population Manager to use a personal computer to produce 
quarterly reports to CJAG of prisoner census statistics. No 
new funding is required. 

Proposal 2: The Criminal Justice Administrators Group 
(CJAG) Provides a Voluntary Forum for Coordinating the 
C riminal Justice System as it Relates to Jail Overcrowding 

CJAG will continue as a voluntary forum to discuss jail 
overcrowding issues. No new funding is required. 

Proposal 3: Continue to Improve Timeliness and Quality of 
Police Reports and Prosecution Review of Police Reports and 
Felony Charges 

San Francisco Police Department will provide more timely 
and higher quality police reports. A new district attorney 
position will review felony charges on weeknights resulting 
in 12 to 24 hours savings in time required to process felony 
charges. Approximately $100,000 in new funding will come 
from non-General Fund sources. 

Proposal 4: Upgrade the OR Project in Concert with the 
Municipal Court 

The Own Recognizance (OR) project currently included in 
the Municipal Court's budget will be upgraded and 
managed by the Sheriffs or Probation Department. The OR 
project is currently performed under a contract for 
approximately $800,000 annually. New procedures could 
increase the cost but operating the project in-house (by the 
Sheriff or Adult Probation) could result in some savings of 
overhead costs. The Municipal Court has deleted funding for 
the OR project in their 1991-92 budget. 

Proposal 5: Seek to Improve the FTA Program 

Reduce Failure-To-Appear (FTA) rate through the existing 
Sheriffs Supervised Citation Project and the Pretrial 

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS 
BUDGET ANALYST

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

June 11, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Diversion Project. The plan estimates that initial costs will 
be minor. 

Proposal 6: Inter-County Pact to Limit the Problem of Traffic 
Holds 

Establish agreements with other counties whereby out-of- 
county traffic holds on nonserious offenders can be handled 
by citation and quick pickup or release. The plan estimates 
minimal costs that could possibly be covered by State or 
federal funding sources. 

Proposal 7: Expedited Trial Management Program 

Superior and Municipal Courts institute an Expedited Trial 
Management Program for speeding case settlement. The 
plan states that costs would be modest. 

Proposal 8: Improved Use of County Parole 

Sheriffs Department clerk will not automatically enter "No 
County Parole" on all sentencing orders; increased use of 
day custody programs; county parole supervised by a Deputy 
Sheriff. The Sheriffs Department costs would increase by 
approximately $60,000 in the first year and would be 
approximately $170,000 annually thereafter. 



Proposal 9: Prioritize Presentence Investigation Reports for 
In-Custody Cases 

Probation Department will prioritize presentence, 
investigation reports by establishing time limits for report 
preparation. No new costs but "substantial" savings 
expected. 



Proposal 10: Expand the Use of Electronic Monitoring 

Use of electronic monitoring devices will be expanded in the 
county parole program for the supervision of most, and 
possibly all, nondangerous convicted offenders eligible for 
nonsecure custody. Such electronic devices allow the parole 
supervisors to know the physical location of prisoners that 
are not held in the jails but are allowed to continue their 
private lives with certain restrictions. Costs air included in 
the expanded county parole program discussed m Proposal 8 
above.

Proposal 11: Construct, Remodel and/or Renovate Facilities 

Construction of a 304 bed Work Furlough Facility and a 76

facilities will begin in a few months and is scheduled for 
completion in 1993. 

Recommendation: Approval of the long term jail overcrowding plan is a policy 
matter for the Board of Supervisors.

Meeting 

Item 1 - File 106-91-4 

1. The proposed ordinance provides for pay equity adjustments to the 
schedules of compensation for persons employed by the City and County of 
San Francisco, the San Francisco Unified School District and the San 
Francisco Community College District effective July 1, 1991, as provided for 
in Charter Section 8.407-1 and contractually mandated by memoranda of 
understanding. 

2. Normally, mandated pay equity adjustments are included in the 
Salary Standardization Ordinance for each year. However, because the 
Salary Standardization Ordinance increases for FY 1991-92 were 
disapproved, the required pay equity adjustments need to be separately 
approved by the Board of Supervisors for FY 1991-92. Amounts for pay equity 
are currently included in the Mayor's Standardized Budget amounts for 
1991-92. 

3. According to Civil Service, the average pay equity increase is 
three percent. Mr. John Rattunde of Civil Service reports that, including 
Community College and San Francisco Unified School District employees, 
an estimated 11,413 positions in 183 classes will receive such pay equity 
adjustments, subject to Board of Supervisors approval. According to the 
Controller's Office, the cost of pay equity for 1991-92 is approximately $8.3 
million. 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

June 17, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

4. Civil Service has advised that an Amendment of the Whole will be 
submitted to the Finance Committee. The proposed Amendment of the 
Whole would change the number of classifications listed in the ordinance 
from 439 classifications to 183 classifications. Only the 183 classifications 
would receive pay equity adjustments for 1991-92. 

Rpcom mendation: 

Amend the proposed ordinance to include the Amendment of the 
Whole. Approve the proposed ordinance as amended.

Items 4 and 5 - Files 89-91-8 and 89-91-7 

1. The proposed resolutions would authorize employees in various 
classifications to enroll in the State Disability Insurance (SDI) Program. The cost 
of SDI coverage would be paid by the employees through normal payroll 
deductions. The proposed legislation would not involve significant cost to the City 
as the Controller's payroll/personnel system is programmed to include this 
deduction. 

2. SDI pays disability benefits to employees who suffer a non-industrial 
injury or illness. SDI-eligible employees have been paying into the SDI system 
since July 1, 1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1% of the first $31,767 of 
gross salary for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While SDI 
coverage is mandatory for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in the 
SDI program, it is not mandatory that employee classifications which are not 
represented by a bargaining unit be included in the SDI program unless a 
majority of employees within the classification requests coverage. 

3. The following classification which is not represented by a bargaining 
unit would be authorized to enroll in the State Disability Program under proposed 
Resolution 89-91-8.

Estate Investigator, 9395 Assistant Rental Manager, and 5102 Public Building 
Maintenance and Repair Assistant Superintendent classifications.

Item 6 -File 112-91-1 

Resolution designating certain newspapers of the City and County of San 
Francisco, commencing July 1, 1991, for specified categories of official advertising. 

Pursuant to Section 2.81 of the Administrative Code, the proposed resolution 
would (1) designate the San Francisco Examiner as the official newspaper for official 
advertising which must be published on two or more consecutive days or which must 
be published in accordance with Section 2.200 or 2.201 of the Charter for special 
meetings of the Board of Supervisors and its standing or special committees and (2) 
designate the San Francisco Independent as the official newspaper for official 
advertising which is required by law to be published one time, other than one-time 
advertising related to special meetings of the Board of Supervisors and its standing or 
special committees, and all official advertising which is required by law to be 
published more than one time but not more than three times a week for a specified 
number of weeks. 

Comments 

1. The Purchasing Department currently contracts with the San Francisco 
Examiner and the San Francisco Independent for the provision of official advertising 
services. These contracts are due to expire June 30, 1991. The Purchasing 
Department reports that a Request for Bids was issued on April 9, 1991. In response 
to the Request for Bids, the Department received a total of five bid proposals. Bidders 
were required to submit typeset samples. The low bidder was determined by the 
lowest cost for the required typeset samples. The San Francisco Examiner and the 
San Francisco Independent were selected by the Department as the two lowest 
bidders. A comparison of the five bid proposals is as follows: 

Bid Item I 
Publication of Ads For Consecutive Davs 

Cost of

Monday through Saturday, a decrease of 13 percent from the current rate of $2.54 and 
(2) $3.58 per line for Sunday, a decrease of 13 percent from the current rate of $4.13. 
Under the proposed contract with the San Francisco Independent, the City would be 
charged at the rate of $2.64 per line for Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, an 
increase of approximately 15 percent from the current rate of $2.30.

• Provisions for early retirement; 

• Rules governing applications, practice/sample examinations, 
examinations, eligibility, duration of eligible lists, certification of 
eligible candidates, appointments, promotions, transfers, 
resignations, and filling of temporary and permanent positions. 

The Committee would also review all reports and legislation relating to Civil Service.

Comments 

1. The proposed resolution specifies that the members of the Advisory 
Committee would serve without compensation. 

2. According to Mr. Albert Walker of the Civil Service Commission, Civil 
Service would expect to incur an undetermined in-kind cost for supplies and clerical 
support in producing the report containing the findings and recommendations. Mr. 
Walker also reports that other City employees may be called upon by the Committee 
as resource people. In addition, five members of the Civil Service Reform Advisory 
Committee would be City employees. As such, the City would incur an unknown in- 
kind cost of allocating staff time to the proposed Advisory Committee. 

Recommen dation 

Approval of the proposed resolution is a policy matter for the Board of 
Supervisors.

Comments: 



Effect on the Cost 
of Government: 



Charter Amendment 

First 

The proposed Charter Amendment would add Section 3.104: 
Office of Contract and Public Policy Compliance, to Article 
III, Executive Branch . 

The proposed Charter Amendment would establish an 
Office of Contract and Public Policy Compliance (OCPPC) 
under the Mayor. The OCPPC would insure that City 
contractors and subcontractors comply with any affirmative 
action or nondiscrimination ordinances adopted by the 
Board of Supervisors. The Mayor would appoint and have 
the power to remove the Director who administers the 
OCPPC. 

The Director of the proposed OCPPC would have the 
authority to investigate and take action against contractors 
who have failed to comply with these laws. The Board of 
Supervisors may adopt legislation to take specified actions 
to enforce compliance with those laws, including 
requesting legal action by the City Attorney. 

The Budget Analyst notes that the Human Rights 
Commission's 1991-92 budget includes Contract 
Compliance Officers, some of which are assigned on work- 
orders to other City Departments. 



The proposed Charter Amendment specifies the hiring of a 
Director to administer the OCPPC. Since the function of the 
OCPPC would be similar to some functions of the Human 
Rights Commission (HRC), the salary of the Director of the 
OCPPC might be similar to that of the annual salary of the 
Executive Director of the HRC ($86,835) or a Contract 
Compliance Office II ($71,436). Based upon these estimates, 
including mandatory fringe benefits, the total cost for a 
Director to administer tin- OCPPC would range between 
$90,724 and $110,280.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

June 25, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

The proposed Charter Amendment does not specify if 
additional staff would be required. If the OCPPC required 
additional staff, the City would incur additional costs of 
these staff including salaries, mandatory fringe benefits, 
materials and supplies, and rental of office space to 
accommodate the Director and the staff. The potential 
additional costs of these expenses are unknown at this time.

Item 9 - File 174-91-1 

Note: The Administrative and Oversight Committee continued this item from its 
meeting of June 25, 1991. 

1. The proposed resolution would create the Civil Service System Reform 
Advisory Committee to review data relating to employees of the City and County and 
rules and policies established by the Civil Service Commission and report findings 
and recommendations to the Board of Supervisors. 

2. The Civil Service System Reform Advisory Committee would review

• Allocation of positions in the various classes of the classification; 

• Pay-for-Performance as a substitute for salary standardization; 

• Provisions for early retirement; 

• Rules governing applications, practice/sample examinations, 
examinations, eligibility, duration of eligible lists, certification of 
eligible candidates, appointments, promotions, transfers, 
resignations, and filling of temporary and permanent positions. 

The Committee would also review all reports and legislation relating to Civil Service. 

3. The resolution proposes that the Board of Supervisors appoint 12 members 

to the Committee, which would consist of the following: 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee

One member of the Civil Service Commission

One member of the Mayor's Fiscal Advisory Committee 

One representative nominated from each of the City's three largest

Five representatives nominated from the public employee labor

4. The resolution also provides a deadline for submittal of findings and 
recommendations to the Board of Supervisors of April 1, 1992. Once the Board of 
Supervisors receives the findings and recommendations, the Civil Service System 
Reform Advisory Committee would be disbanded. 

Comments 

1. The proposed resolution specifies that the members of the Advisory 
Committee would serve without compensation. 

2. According to Mr. Albert Walker of the Civil Service Commission, Civil 
Service would expect to incur an undetermined in-kind cost for supplies and clerical 
support in producing the report containing the findings and recommendations. Mr. 
Walker also reports that other City employees may be called upon by the Committee 
as resource people. In addition, five members of the Civil Service Reform Advisory 
Committee would be City employees. As such, the City would incur an unknown in- 
kind cost of allocating staff time to the proposed Advisory Committee. 

3. Mr. A. Lee Munson of the Civil Service Commission advises that the 
Commission has already studied the above issues over the past year. The 
Commission heard testimony and reviewed written comments from members of the 
public, City employees, as well as employee organizations. As a result of the study, 
the Commission subsequently drafted proposed Charter amendments, which are the 
subject of Items 11, 12, 13, and 14 on the July 9, 1991 Administrative and Oversight 
Committee Meeting Calendar. 

4. Mr. Munson also states that the Civil Service Commission normally does 
not determine provisions for early retirement. Provisions for early retirement would 
be determined by the City's Retirement System. 

Recommendation 

Approval of the proposed resolution is a policy matter for the Board of 
Supervisors.

Comments: 



Charter Amendment 



First 



The proposed Charter Amendment would amend Section 
8.400 to add subdivision (i) to provide salary continuation for 
City employees who are military reservists called to active 
duty. 

The proposed Charter Amendment would allow a City officer 
or employee called to active duty with a United States military 
reserve organization to receive from the City for a period not 
to exceed 180 days, the difference between the amount of the 
individual's military pay and the amount the individual 
would have received as a City officer or employee. The 
proposed Charter Amendment requires the reservist to be 
called into active service for more than 30 consecutive days 
and must be for extraordinary circumstances which would 
not include scheduled training, drills, unit training 
assemblies or other such events. 

The Charter Amendment further stipulates that any 
individual receiving compensation under the proposed 
provisions who does not return to City service within 60 days 
of release from active duty, or if the individual is not fit for 
employment within 60 days of return, shall have that 
compensation treated as a loan. 

The Controller's Office reports that the proposed Charter 
Amendment could result in increased costs to the City 
depending on whether the United States enters into a war 
that requires its reserves to enter active duty and the number 
of City employees and officers in the reserves. The extent of 
increased costs would depend on the salaries of the City 
employees deployed to active service and the duration of the 
conflict.

Item 11 -File 218-91-1 

Proposed Ballot

Draft: 

Sections Affected: 



Description: 



Charter Amendment 



First 



The proposed Charter Amendment would amend Section 
3.661 relating to the powers and duties of the Civil Service 
Commission. 

The proposed Charter Amendment would enable the Civil 
Service to promulgate and to implement rules pertaining to 
the use of performance evaluations, position classifications 
and departmental reorganizations. This Charter 
Amendment would enable the Commission to make 
changes in rules governing these areas one week after 
public notification, provided that such a rule would not 
affect any of the cases pending before the Commission. The 
Commission would also have the authority to establish 
procedures for reviewing and resolving allegations of 
discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, age 
and/or sexual or political affiliation. 

According to Mr. A. Lee Munson of the Civil Service 
Commission, the current system, which utilizes eligible 
lists with a four-year duration, encourages an excessive 
number of classifications and unnecessary departmental 
reorganizations as managers seek to gain additional 
flexibility in their staffing and hiring decisions. As a 
result, departments use temporary employees rather than 
filling vacancies with permanent employees and seek 
position classification levels that are frequently too high for 
the work performed. However, under the present system, 
the Civil Service Commission lacks the authority to freeze 
the excess wages until it can correct the misclassification. 
The proposed Amendment would eliminate the clause 
stating that allocation or reallocation of a position cannot 
adversely affect an incumbent and, therefore, would allow 
the Civil Service to freeze the salaries of employees whose 
positions are wrongly classified. Furthermore, Mr. 
Munson reports that a greater emphasis on performance 
evaluations would enhance and legitimize the promotional 
opportunities for existing employees and would enable the 
City to recruit well qualified candidates. Mr. Munson 
states that the proposed Charter Amendment would resolve 
these problems.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

July 5, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Analysis: 1. According to Mr. Munson, City department heads do not 

use performance evaluations consistently. Mr. Munson 
states that greater flexibility in the use of performance 
evaluations would not only ailow managers to differentiate 
employees on the quality of their work but would also 
motivate employees by giving them an incentive to excel. By 
placing a greater emphasis on the content and consistency 
of performance evaluations, the Commission is attempting 
to promote productive and self-motivated employees while 
also deterring the promotion of lackadaisical workers. He 
also reports that in a recent survey, approximately 30 
departmental personnel officers responded that an 
improved candidate pool could reduce their permanent staff 
by 1 to 2 percent on average. 

2. San Francisco has 1,680 position classifications, 43 
percent of which are single position classes. Departments 
often apply for new classifications for employees who are 
performing specialized tasks or when managers are 
attempting to avoid hiring an unqualified candidate from 
the eligible list. These reclassification requests 
substantially increase the workload and thereby slow the 
pace of the Exam Group of the Civil Service Commission, 
which is responsible for preparing examinations for new 
positions. According to Mr. Munson, in the long-term, the 
Commission is attempting to shrink the total number of 
classifications by one-half. 

3. Mr. Munson states that in the short term, greater 
classification flexibility would enable the Commission to 
"red-circle" classifications where departments had actually 
down-graded the job requirements, or to freeze the salary 
levels of those employees who are wrongly classified. 
According to the City Attorney's Office, the proposed 
Charter Amendment would give the Civil Service 
Commission the authority to freeze wages of incumbent 
employees who are classified at a higher level than their 
present jobs necessitate. If the Commission had the 
authority to freeze an employee's wages, it would maintain 
the existing salary level and would deny any annual 
increases until the sum of those annual increases 
combined with the base salary for the appropriate 
classification equals the current salary level. Once the 
employee has caught up to the current salary level for the 
classification which accurately reflects the job 
requirements, the Commission would lift the salary freeze.

4. The proposed Charter Amendment would also 
strengthen the Commission's ability to investigate and to 
respond to managerial infractions of Civil Service 
procedures, which are based on the premise of a merit 
system. Mr. Munson states that this proposed Amendment 
would give the Commission the authority to respond to 
employee grievances and, in extreme cases, to rescind 
improper appointments and to file charges of misconduct 
against the offending manager. The Commission would be 
able to subpoena witnesses and records relevant to its 
investigation. 

Effect on the Cost 

of Government: Mr. Munson states that the Commission does not anticipate 

that the proposed Charter Amendment will increase 
personnel costs over their present budgeted level because 
improvements in the eligible list structure will make 
department heads more amenable to reductions in the 
number of permanent position classifications. 

Although the Commission has not conducted any detailed 
statistical research of the classification system at this time, 
Mr. Munson estimates that if even 50 positions within the 
City's 1,680 classifications are over-classified by 20 percent, 
the savings from freezing wages could total $500,000 
annually. 

Mr. Munson states that the Civil Service Commission is 
attempting to stimulate greater productivity from a smaller 
number of City employees through these reforms. 
According to Mr. Munson, the Civil Service Commission 
estimates from a survey of 30 departmental personnel 
officers that if departments are able to hire more qualified 
people from a broader candidate pool that is updated more 
frequently and to eliminate dismissed employees from the 
payroll more quickly, the City could reduce its permanent, 
classified positions by 1 to 2 percent. Therefore, with 
annual personnel expenditures of approximately $1.55 
billion, the City could save $15.5 million to $31 million. 
Based on estimates made by Mr. Munson, approximately 
$528,000 of that $15.5 million to $31 million would be derived 
from the savings associated with the Charter Amendment 
of Section 8.341, relating to the removal and discharge of 
permanent employees (see Item 14, File 223-91-1 of tins 
report).

Analysis: 



Charter Amendment 



First 



The" proposed Charter Amendment would delete Sections 
8.320, 8.321, 8.322, 8.323, 8.324, 8.328, 8.330, 8.331, 8.332 and 
8.340 relating to qualifications, examinations, eligible lists, 
provisional appointments and dismissal during probation, 
and would add new Section 8.320-1 incorporating the 
provisions of the above sections into the Civil Service 
Commission rules. 

Presently, the Civil Service Commission can only change a 
Charter Section applicable to their area of jurisdiction by 
obtaining a Charter Amendment. The adoption of this 
Charter Amendment would enable the Civil Service 
Commission to change its rules without the necessity of a 
Charter Amendment. According to Mr. A. Lee Munson of 
the Civil Service Commission, the current process is time- 
consuming and cumbersome and has prevented the Civil 
Service Commission from addressing its present 
operational and procedural inefficiencies. The proposed 
Charter Amendment would enable the Civil Service 
Commission to modify its existing rules gradually and at its 
own discretion without a Charter Amendment after 
meeting with the appropriate employee organizations and 
conducting public hearings. 

1. In response to the unsuccessful, large-scale Civil Service 
reform of the 1980's, the Civil Service Commission is 
attempting to initiate a gradual self-modernization. 
According to Mr. Munson, the inclusion of specific Civil 
Service regulations in the City Charter is wholly 
inappropriate. The requirements of the Charter hamper all 
of the Civil Service procedures, causing lengthy delays and 
general dissatisfaction among the individuals involved. To 
change its standard operating procedures, the Civil Service 
Commission believes that it must have the capability to 
modify and to establish its own rules. According to Mr. 
Munson, the proposed system would be more efficient for 
and more responsive to those individuals who are directly 
affected by the Commission's procedures.

2. Under the proposed Charter Amendment, the 
Commission will maintain the existing Sections verbatim. 
Although the Civil Service Commission will have complete 
control over the content of proposed rule changes, it will be 
accountable to the public and to employee representatives. 
When a rule change is proposed, the Commission will meet 
and confer with employee representatives and will hold 
public hearings to assess the level of support for and/or 
opposition to the proposed change. Neither the Mayor nor 
the Board of Supervisors will have an oversight role in the 
rule-making process. Mr. Munson believes that this type of 
administrative discretion is appropriate for the 
Commission because it has expert knowledge on these 
procedural issues. 

3. If this Charter Amendment is approved, Mr. Munson 
states that the Civil Service Commission plans to develop a 
candidate pool based on a continuous list structure, a 
system currently used by the nine largest cities and 
counties in California. Because of the Charter Section 
regarding duration of lists (Section 8.330), the Civil Service 
Commission cannot institute a continuous list system. 
Presently, the Civil Service Commission offers 375 exams 
annually. From those exams, the Commission develops 
eligible lists, each with a four-year duration, containing 
three possible candidates. According to Mr. Munson, 
department managers resent having to select employees 
from these sparse, out-dated lists. To avoid hiring the last 
candidate, managers allow the list to expire. According to 
Mr. Munson, the proposed system of continuous lists would 
enable the Commission to update the lists continually with 
those candidates who scored the highest on the most recent 
test date. Mr. Munson states that by offering the most 
qualified candidate pool to department heads, this system 
will increase productivity. Departments will require fewer 
of these more productive and motivated employees to 
accomplish the same quantity of work. 

Effect on the Cost 

of Government: If the proposed Charter Amendment is passed, the Civil 

Service Commission will determine its own rules and 
regulations with the input of employee representatives and 
the public. According to Mr. Munson, the Commission 
does not anticipate any additional costs to be associated with 
these procedures. The input of the public and employee 
representatives would become a part of the Commission's 
regular agenda, occurring during the normal meeting 
times. Mr. Munson said that the Commission would

Comments: 



The proposed Charter amendment would amend Section 8.329 
relating to the certification of eligible candidates. 

The proposed Charter amendment would change Section 8.329 
relating to the "Rule of Three." Presently, when a City 
department requests the filling of a Civil Service position, the 
Civil Service Commission certifies the three highest ranking 
candidates on the list to be considered for the vacant position. If 
more than three candidates are eligible to be considered because 
of identical examination scores, Civil Service must break the tie 
using a lottery procedure. 

The proposed Charter amendment would allow all candidates 
with the three highest examination scores to be certified and 
considered for the vacant position, thereby eliminating the use of 
a lottery procedure. 

1. San Francisco changed from the Rule of One candidate to the 
Rule of Three candidates in the mid-1970's. According to Mr. A. 
Lee Munson of the Civil Service Commission, San Francisco still 
has the most restrictive certification standards of the nine 
largest California cities and counties recently surveyed. Mr. 
Munson said that ideally the Civil Service Commission is 
seeking to adopt a certification system that selects the three 
highest scores with a minimum of six candidates, a method 
presently used by the City of Los Angeles. However, the 
proposed Charter Amendment would only allow the certification 
of those candidates with the three highest scores. 

2. According to Mr. Munson , a broader candidate pool will offer 
managers more flexibility in their hiring decisions. Mr. 
Munson added that the flexibility derived from a larger 
candidate pool does not mean that departments will have an 
opportunity to discriminate, as many employee representatives 
suspect. Mr. Munson said that the Commission plans to 
institute a reporting mechanism in the near future to monitor 
the racial, ethnic and gender composition of new departmental 
employees. To ensure that no pattern of discrimination exists, 
the Commission would compare a department's selection to the 
candidates on the eligible list.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

July 9, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

3. According to Mr. Munson, the Commission believes that a 
broader candidate selection pool will deter departments from 
adding unnecessary classifications or hiring temporary 
employees rather than permanently filling their vacancies. Mr. 
Munson states that increasing the number of eligibles certified 
for a vacant position would reduce the City's overall number of 
classifications. 



Effect on the Cost 

of Government: Mr. Munson stated that the Civil Service Commission does not 
anticipate any additional costs associated with changing the 
rule of three candidates to the rule of three highest scores. 

The Controller's Office advises that the proposed Charter 
Amendment would not effect the cost of government.

Charter Amendment 



First 



The proposed Charter Amendment would amend Section 
8.341 relating to the removal or discharge of permanent 
employees. 

The proposed Charter Amendment would change Section 
8.341 to allow the City to terminate employees and provide 
appeal rights to terminated employees in the form of a post- 
termination grievance procedure. Presently, the City must 
keep permanent employees charged with dismissal on the 
payroll, for up to thirty days, until a proceeding before a 
hearing officer is held. The verdict of the hearing officer is 
final. However, the employee can file an appeal to have the 
opportunity to address the Civil Service Commission 
regarding future employability rights. 

The proposed Charter Amendment would allow the 
appointing officer to terminate the employee or place the 
employee on unpaid administrative leave, and allow 
dismissed employees to arbitrate the initial decision of 
discharge or suspension. If the decision reaches arbitration, 
the hearing officer has the authority to affirm or reverse the 
previous decision of termination. The proposed Amendment 
also allows the hearing officer to order back-payment of 
salary for the period in which the employee was discharged 
or removed and to expunge the personnel record of the 
employee. 



Mr. A. Lee Munson of the Civil Service Commission 
estimates that the average salary level, including benefits, for 
a City employee is $40,000 per year. Currently, the 
Commission hears approximately 200 dismissal proceedings 
per year. In most cases, a hearing officer makes a decision 
within thirty days of the charges being filed. Usually, the 
hearing officer's decision removes the employee from the City 
payroll. However, according to Mr. Munson, in 
approximately 20 percent of these proceedings, employees are 
still paid while they are appealing the initial discharge 
decision. That appeal process lasts an average of four 
months. According to Mr. Munson, the proposed Charter 
Amendment would remove discharged employees from the 
City payroll immediately following the hearing officer's 
decision. Mr. Munson estimates that this proposed change 
could save the City approximately $528,000, annually

The proposed Charter Amendment would amend Section 
8.100. 

Proposition L, passed by the San Francisco electorate in June 
of 1990, stipulates that no person can be a candidate for any 
elective office or be appointed as a member of any board, 
commission or advisory body established by legislative action of 
the Board of Supervisors, unless he or she is a resident and an 
elector of the City and County of San Francisco. 

The current voting age is 18 years old. The proposed Charter 
Amendment would therefore provide that persons, under the 
age of 18, who are appointed by the Board of Supervisors to 
boards, commissions or advisory bodies created by legislative 
action of the Board, must be residents, but need not be electors 
of the City and County, until they are 18 years of age. 



The proposed Charter Amendment would have no fiscal 
impact.

Ordinance 

Skeletal 

Part III of the City's Municipal Code 

The proposed ordinance would amend the City's Municipal 
Code by eliminating the existing Parking Tax percentage 
formula and replacing it with a $13 per parking stall per 
month fee. In addition, the proposed ordinance would 
establish a special rate to be paid for parking stalls used for 
special events and for parking stalls that are privately 
owned but do not generate revenue. As of the writing of this 
report, the proposed ordinance has not yet been drafted. As 
such, the definitions of special events and the privately 
owned stalls that do not generate revenue have not yet been 
established. In addition, the fees for the special event stalls 
and the privately owned non-revenue generating stalls 
have not yet been established. Mr. Jack Doherty of the City 
Attorney's Office reports that the draft of the proposed 
ordinance will be ready by July 15, 1991. 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

July 15, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Comments: 1. According to Ms. Julie DiGregorio, representative of the 

Parking Industry, a study conducted by Twitchel 
Consultants reported that San Francisco currently has 
approximately 109,049 parking stalls in the downtown area 
and 80,000 parking stalls in the rest of the City for a total of 
approximately 190,000 parking stalls Citywide. 

2. Mr. Tim Johnson of the Department of Parking and 
Traffic reports that DPT is unable to concur with the 
estimated 190,000 parking stalls in San Francisco. The 
Budget Analyst notes that the 190,000 estimate includes 
parking stalls located at gas stations, under the freeway, 
hotels and other parking areas that do not necessarily 
generate revenue. According to Mr. Bill Wycko of the 
Department of City Planning, there are approximately 
50,000 parking stalls in the downtown area and 59,000 
parking stalls in the rest of the City for a total of 
approximately 109,000 stalls Citywide. Mr. Richard 
Sullivan of the Tax Collector's Office reports that 109,000 is 
a reasonable estimate of the number of parking stalls in the 
City. Mr. Wycko advises that the 109,000 is only an estimate 
and that the Department of City Planning will be 
conducting a new survey of parking stalls sometime in 
August of 1991. 

Effect on the 

Cost of Government; 1. As noted above in Comment No. 2, the 190,000 estimate of 
parking stalls in San Francisco includes non-revenue 
generating stalls. The exact number of these non-revenue 
generating stalls is not known. 

2. Because the draft of the proposed ordinance has not been 
written, the Budget Analyst is not able to determine which 
non-revenue generating privately owned parking stalls 
would be included in the proposed ordinance. 

3. Using the proposed $13 per month parking stall fee and 
the Parking Industry's estimated 190,000 parking stalls, the 
proposed ordinance would generate approximately 
$29,640,000 (excluding the special rates for parking stalls 
used for special events and for the privately owned non- 
revenue generating parking stalls). Using the Department 
of City Planning's estimate of 109,000 parking stalls, the 
proposed ordinance would generate approximately 
$17,004,000 (again, excluding the special rates for parking 
stalls used for special events and for the privately owned 
non-revenue generating parking stalls).

July 15, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

4. The City currently collects approximately $24 million 
annually, including $6 million allocated to the Senior 
Citizens Programs Fund, from the City's Parking Tax 
based on a 15 percent Parking Tax and a five percent 
Parking Tax Surcharge rate of parking fees charged at 
City-owned garages and privately owned garages. In 
addition, the Mayor's 1991-92 budget includes $5.5 million 
(11 months in fiscal year 1991-92) in revenue to be generated 
by increasing the City's Parking Tax Surcharge by five 
percent for a total of $29.5 million in revenue generated by 
the Parking Tax for fiscal year 1991-92. The ordinance 
proposing this additional five percent Parking Tax 
Surcharge increase is currently pending before the Finance 
Committee. 

5. The proposed ordinance is based on a flat fee and does 
not include provisions for inflation. The current parking 
tax, which is based on a percent of the rate paid, 
automatically increases revenues to the City as rates or 
total parking revenues increase. Under the proposed 
ordinance, the Board of Supervisors would have to amend 
the ordinance to increase the parking stall rate. 

6. According to Mr. Sullivan, the proposed ordinance does 
not take into account the various prices charged at different 
parking lots throughout the City or that no revenue is 
generated from some of these parking spaces. For 
example, one parking lot downtown may charge $1 for every 
30 minutes or approximately $16 per day to park in one stall 
while a smaller lot in a more inconvenient location charges 
$4 for the entire day for one stall and another parking lot 
does not charge its customers for parking. Under the 
proposed ordinance, all of the parking lots would pay the 
same for each stall regardless of the amount of revenue the 
parking lot generates from the stalls. According to Mr. 
Sullivan, this could result in less parking revenues and less 
profits at the smaller, less expensive parking lots which, in 
turn, could decrease the amount of revenues which the City 
would be able to generate under the proposed fixed fee plan. 
In addition, the valet parking lots can accommodate more 
cars per square foot than the nonvalet parking lots, making 
it difficult to estimate the actual number of parking stalls.

7. The proposed parking stall fee is not a special tax and 
would be deposited to the City's General Fund. If this 
legislation were approved, it is anticipated that the Mayor 
and the Board of Supervisors would then appropriate a 
portion of these funds for use by the Commission on Aging 
to continue to provide services for senior citizens since 
presently, as previously noted, approximately $6 million 
from the City's Parking Tax is annually appropriated to the 
Senior Citizens Programs Fund.

Description: 



Charter Amendment 



First 



The proposed Charter Amendment would amend Section 
3.661 relating to the powers and duties of the Civil Service 
Commission. 

The proposed Charter Amendment would enable the Civil 
Service to promulgate and to implement rules pertaining to 
the use of performance evaluations, position classifications 
and departmental reorganizations. 

According to Mr. A. Lee Munson of the Civil Service 
Commission, the current system encourages an excessive 
number of classifications and unnecessary departmental 
reorganizations as managers seek to gain additional 
flexibility in their staffing and hiring decisions. The Civil 
Service Commission also lacks the authority to freeze the 
excess wages associated with incorrectly classified 
positions. The proposed Amendment would eliminate the 
clause stating that allocation or reallocation of a position 
cannot adversely affect an incumbent and, therefore, would 
allow the Civil Service to freeze the salaries of employees 
whose positions are wrongly classified. Furthermore, Mr. 
Munson reports that a greater emphasis on performance 
evaluations would enhance and legitimize the promotional 
opportunities for existing employees and would enhance the 
City's efforts in recruiting well-qualified candidates. Mr. 
Munson states that the proposed Charter Amendment 
would assist in resolving these problems.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

July 15, 1991 Special Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Comments: 1. According to Mr. Munson, City department heads do not 

use performance evaluations consistently. Mr. Munson 
states that greater flexibility in the use of performance 
evaluations would not only allow managers to differentiate 
employees on the quality of their work but would also 
motivate employees by giving them an incentive to excel. By 
placing a greater emphasis on the content and consistency 
of performance evaluations, the Commission is attempting 
to promote productive and self-motivated employees while 
also deterring the promotion of lackadaisical workers. He 
also reports that in a recent survey, approximately 30 
departmental personnel officers responded that an 
improved candidate pool could reduce their permanent staff 
by 1 to 2 percent on average. 

2. Mr. Munson states that in the short term, greater 
classification flexibility would enable the Commission to 
"red-circle" classifications where departments had actually 
down-graded the job requirements and to freeze the salary 
levels of those employees who are wrongly classified. 
According to the City Attorney's Office, the proposed 
Charter Amendment would give the Civil Service 
Commission the authority to freeze wages of incumbent 
employees who are classified at a higher level than their 
present jobs necessitate. If the Commission had the 
authority to freeze an employee's wages, it would maintain 
the existing salary level and would deny any annual 
increases until the sum of those annual increases 
combined with the base salary for the appropriate 
classification equals the current salary level. Once the 
employee has caught up to the current salary level for the 
classification which accurately reflects the job 
requirements, the Commission would lift the salary freeze. 

3. The proposed Charter Amendment would also 
strengthen the Commission's ability to investigate and to 
respond to managerial infractions of Civil Service 
procedures, which are based on the premise of a merit 
system. Mr. Munson states that this proposed Amendment 
would give the Commission the authority to respond to 
employee grievances and, in extreme cases, to rescind 
improper appointments and to file charges of misconduct 
against the offending manager. The Commission would be 
able to subpoena witnesses and records relevant to its 
investigation.

4. It should be noted that the Mayor's Office and the 
Employee Relations Division are presently negotiating with 
the employee groups to place a collective bargaining 
agreement and related Charter Amendments on the 
November, 1991 ballot. According to Ms. Maggie Jacobsen of 
the Employee Relations Division, the specific details of the 
final collective bargaining Memorandum of Agreement 
have yet to be agreed upon by the Unions and the City. Once 
completed, the final Memorandum of Agreement will be 
submitted to the Board of Supervisors for ratification. 

5. The proposed collective bargaining Memorandum of 
Agreement also includes a clause that requires the Service 
Employees International Union (SEIU) and the Civil 
Service Commission to mutually agree on the proposed 
Civil Service Charter Amendments referred to the Board of 
Supervisors. However, Mr. John Holtzman of the City 
Attorney's Office does not agree with this requirement, and 
as of the writing of this report, this issue has not yet been 
resolved with the SEIU. Mr. Holtzman further states that 
irrespective of the Civil Service clause in the draft 
Memorandum of Agreement, the Board of Supervisors has 
the power to consider any proposed Charter Amendment 
submitted by the Civil Service Commission. As of the 
writing of this report, Civil Service is still in meet and 
confer sessions with the various employee organizations on 
the proposed Charter Amendments. 

Effect on the Cost 

of Government: Mr. Munson states that the Commission does not anticipate 

that the proposed Charter Amendment will increase 
personnel costs over their present budgeted level because 
improvements in the eligible list structure will make 
department heads more amenable to reductions in the 
number of permanent position classifications. 

Although the Commission has not conducted any detailed 
statistical research of the classification system at this time, 
Mr. Munson estimates that if even 50 positions within the 
City's 1,680 miscellaneous classifications are over-classified 
by 20 percent, the savings from freezing wages could total 
$500,000, on an annual basis.

Mr. Munson states that the Civil Service Commission is 
attempting to stimulate greater productivity from a smaller 
number of City employees through these reforms. 
According to Mr. Munson, the Civil Service Commission 
estimates from a survey of 30 departmental personnel 
officers that if departments are able to hire more qualified 
people from a broader candidate pool that is updated more 
frequently and to eliminate dismissed employees from the 
payroll more quickly, the City could reduce its permanent, 
classified positions by 1 to 2 percent. Therefore, with 
annual personnel expenditures of approximately $1.55 
billion, the City could save $15.5 million to $31 million. 
Based on estimates made by Mr. Munson, approximately 
$300,000 of that $15.5 million to $31 million would be derived 
from the savings associated with the Charter Amendment 
of Section 8.341, relating to the removal and discharge of 
permanent employees (see Item 5, File 223-91-1 of this 
report). 

The Controller's Office advises that the proposed 
amendment should not result in increased costs.

Committee's meeting of July 9, 1991. 



Proposed Ballot 
Measure: 

Draft: 

Sections Affected: 



Description: 



Analysis: 



Charter Amendment 



First 



The proposed Charter Amendment would delete Sections 
8.320, 8.321, 8.322, 8.323, 8.324, 8.328, 8.330, 8.331, 8.332 and 
8.340 relating to qualifications, examinations, eligible lists, 
provisional appointments and dismissal during probation, 
and would add new Section 8.320-1 incorporating the 
provisions of the above sections into the Civil Service 
Commission rules. 

Presently, the Civil Service Commission can only change a 
Charter Section applicable to their area of jurisdiction by 
obtaining a Charter Amendment. The adoption of this 
Charter Amendment would enable the Civil Service 
Commission to change its rules without the necessity of a 
Charter Amendment, after meeting and conferring with 
the employee organizations. According to Mr. A. Lee 
Munson of the Civil Service Commission, the current 
process is time-consuming and cumbersome and has 
prevented the Civil Service Commission from addressing its 
present operational and procedural inefficiencies. The 
proposed Charter Amendment would enable the Civil 
Service Commission to modify its existing rules without a 
Charter Amendment, after meeting with the appropriate 
employee organizations and conducting public hearings. 

1. In response to the unsuccessful, large-scale Civil Service 
reform of the 1980's, the Civil Service Commission is 
attempting to initiate a gradual self-modernization. Mr. 
Munson states that the inclusion of specific Civil Service 
regulations in the City Charter is wholly inappropriate. 
The requirements of the Charter hamper all of the Civil 
Service procedures, causing lengthy delays and general 
dissatisfaction among the individuals involved. To change 
its standard operating procedures, the Civil Service 
Commission believes that it must have the capability to 
modify and to establish its own rules. According to Mr. 
Munson, the proposed system would be more efficient for 
and responsive to those individuals wbo are directly affected 
by the Commission's procedures.

2. Under the proposed Charter Amendment, the 
Commission would maintain the existing wording of the 
Sections. Although the Civil Service Commission would 
have complete control over the content of proposed rule 
changes, it would be accountable to the public and to 
employee representatives. When a rule change is proposed, 
the Commission would meet and confer with employee 
representatives and would hold public hearings to assess 
the level of support for and/or opposition to the proposed 
change. Neither the Mayor nor the Board of Supervisors 
would have an oversight role in the rule-making process. 
Mr. Munson believes that this type of administrative 
discretion is appropriate for the Commission because it has 
expert knowledge on these procedural issues. 

3. If this Charter Amendment is approved, Mr. Munson 
states that the Civil Service Commission plans to develop a 
candidate pool based on a continuous list structure, a 
system currently used by the nine largest cities and 
counties in California. Because of the Charter Section 
regarding duration of lists (Section 8.330), the Civil Service 
Commission cannot institute a continuous list system. 
Presently, the Civil Service Commission offers 375 exams 
annually. From those exams, the Commission develops 
eligible lists, each with a four-year duration, containing 
three possible candidates. According to Mr. Munson, 
department managers will not select employees from old 
lists. To avoid hiring the last candidate, managers allow 
the list to expire, and in the interim, hire individuals on a 
temporary basis. The proposed system of continuous lists 
would enable the Commission to update the lists 
continually with those candidates who scored the highest 
on the most recent test date. Mr. Munson states that by 
offering the most qualified candidate pool to department 
heads, this system will increase productivity. Departments 
will require fewer of these more productive and motivated 
employees to accomplish the same quantity of work. 

4. It should be noted that the Mayor's Office and the 
Employee Relations Division are presently negotiating with 
the employee groups to place a collective bargaining 
agreement and related Charter Amendments on the 
November, 1991 ballot. According to Ms. Maggie Jacobsen of 
the Employee Relations Division, the specific details of the 
final collective bargaining Memorandum of Agreement 
have yet to be agreed upon by the Unions and the City. Once 
completed, the final Memorandum of Agreement will be 
submitted to the Board of Supervisors for ratification.

5. The proposed collective bargaining Memorandum of 
Agreement also includes a clause that requires the Service 
Employees International Union (SEIU) and the Civil 
Service Commission to mutually agree on the proposed 
Civil Service Charter Amendments before such Charter 
Amendments are referred to the Board of Supervisors. 
However, Mr. John Holtzman of the City Attorney's Office 
does not agree with this requirement, and as of the writing 
of this report, this issue has not yet been resolved with the 
SEIU. Mr. Holtzman further states that irrespective of the 
Civil Service clause in the draft Memorandum of 
Agreement, the Board of Supervisors has the power to 
consider any proposed Charter Amendment submitted by 
the Civil Service Commission. As of the writing of this 
report, Civil Service is still in meet and confer sessions with 
the various employee organizations on the proposed 
Charter Amendments. 

Effect on the Cost 

of Government: If the proposed Charter Amendment is passed, the Civil 

Service Commission will determine its own rules and 
regulations with the input of employee representatives and 
the public. According to Mr. Munson, the Commission 
does not anticipate any additional costs to be associated with 
these procedures. The input of the public and employee 
representatives would become a part of the Commission's 
regular agenda, occurring during the normal meeting 
times. Mr. Munson said that the Commission would 
allocate a greater portion of the meeting time for procedural 
matters and, therefore, would not incur any additional 
hearing expenses. 

The Controller's Office advises that the proposed 
amendment should not affect the cost of government.

meeting of July 9, 1991. 

Proposed Action: Charter Amendment 

Draft: First 



Section Affected: 



Description: 



Comments: 



The proposed Charter amendment would amend Section 8.329 
relating to the certification of eligible candidates. 

The proposed Charter amendment would change Section 8.329 
relating to the "Rule of Three." Presently, when a City 
department requests the filling of a Civil Service position, the 
Civil Service Commission certifies the three highest ranking 
candidates on the list to be considered for the vacant position. If 
more than three candidates are eligible to be considered because 
of identical examination scores, Civil Service must break the tie 
using a lottery procedure. 

The proposed Charter amendment would allow a minimum of 
all candidates with the three highest examination scores to be 
certified and considered for the vacant position, thereby 
eliminating the use of a lottery procedure. 

1. San Francisco changed from the Rule of One candidate to the 
Rule of Three candidates in the mid-1970's. According to Mr. A. 
Lee Munson of the Civil Service Commission, San Francisco still 
has the most restrictive certification standards of the nine 
largest California cities and counties recently surveyed. The 
Civil Service Commission is proposing a Charter Amendment 
that would allow the certification of a minimum of those 
candidates with the three highest scores. 

2. According to Mr. Munson , a broader candidate pool will offer 
managers more flexibility in their hiring decisions. Mr. 
Munson added that the flexibility derived from a larger 
candidate pool does not mean that departments will have an 
opportunity to discriminate, as many employee representatives 
suspect. Mr. Munson said that the Commission plans to 
institute a reporting mechanism in the near future to monitor 
the racial, ethnic and gender composition of new departmental 
employees. To ensure that no pattern of discrimination exists, 
the Commission would compare a department's selection to the 
candidates on the eligible list.

3. According to Mr. Munson, the Commission believes that a 
broader candidate selection pool will deter departments from 
adding unnecessary classifications or hiring temporary 
employees rather than permanently filling their vacancies. Mr. 
Munson states that increasing the number of eligibles certified 
for a vacant position would reduce the City's overall number of 
classifications. 

4. It should be noted that the Mayor's Office and the Employee 
Relations Division are presently negotiating with the employee 
groups to place a collective bargaining agreement and related 
Charter Amendments on the November, 1991 ballot. According 
to Ms. Maggie Jacobsen of the Employee Relations Division, the 
specific details of the final collective bargaining Memorandum 
of Agreement have yet to be agreed upon by the Unions and the

be submitted to the Board of Supervisors for ratification.

proposed Charter Amendments. 

Effect on the Cost 

of Government: Mr. Munson stated that the Civil Service Commission does not 
anticipate any additional costs associated with changing the 
rule of three candidates to the rule of three highest scores. 

The Controller's Office advises that the proposed Charter 
Amendment would not effect the cost of government.

Item 5- File 223-91-1 

Note: This item was continued from the Administration and Oversight 
Committee's meeting of July 9, 1991. 

Proposed Action: Charter Amendment 

Draft: First 



Section Affected: 



Description: 



Comments: 



The proposed Charter Amendment would amend Section 
8.341 relating to the removal or discharge of permanent 
employees. 

The proposed Charter Amendment would change Section 
8.341 to allow the City to terminate employees and provide 
appeal rights to terminated employees in the form of a post- 
termination grievance procedure. Presently, the City must 
keep permanent employees charged with dismissal on the 
payroll until a proceeding before a hearing officer is held. 

The proposed Charter Amendment would allow the 
appointing officer, or designee, to terminate the employee or 
place the employee on unpaid administrative leave, and allow 
dismissed employees to arbitrate the initial decision of 
discharge or suspension. If the decision reaches arbitration, 
the hearing officer has the authority to affirm or reverse the 
previous decision of termination. The proposed Amendment 
also allows the hearing officer to order back-payment of 
salary for the period in which the employee was discharged 
or removed and to expunge the personnel record of the 
employee. 

1. Mr. A. Lee Munson of the Civil Service Commission 
estimates that the average salary level, including benefits, for 
a City employee is $40,000 per year. Currently, 
approximately 90 dismissal proceedings are conducted each 
year. In most cases, a hearing officer makes a decision 
within thirty days of the charges being filed, and usually, the 
hearing officer's decision removes the employee from the City 
payroll. However, because of delays in the dismissal 
proceedings, the entire process may exceed thirty days. 
According to Civil Service, that dismissal process lasts an 
average of six weeks. According to Mr. Munson, the 
proposed Charter Amendment would remove discharged 
employees from the City payroll immediately following the 
Department appointing officer's decision. Termination of the 
employee from the payroll could be made within two weeks 
Assuming an acceleration of the dismissal process by four 
weeks, Civil Service estimates that this proposed change 
could save the City approximately $300,000, annually.

Comments: 



The proposed Charter Amendment would add Section 8.408 
authorizing collective bargaining on wages, hours, benefits 
and other terms and conditions of City employment. 

The Mayor's Office, including its Employee Relations 
Division, and the employee unions are presently negotiating 
Memoranda of Agreement in exchange for the previously 
imposed freeze on the Salary Standardization provisions of 
Charter Sections 8.401 and 8.407 for FY 1991-92. A draft of the 
Memorandum of Agreement with the SEIU, dated June 10, 
1991, provided for the placement of specific Charter 
Amendments regarding collective bargaining on the 
November 5, 1991 ballot. This proposed Charter Amendment 
would add Section 8.408 to provide for collective bargaining. 
According to Ms. Maggie Jacobsen of the Employee Relations 
Division, the specific details of the final collective bargaining 
Memorandum of Agreement have yet to be agreed upon by 
the various employee unions and the City. Once completed, 
the final Memorandum of Agreement and corresponding 
draft Charter Amendments will be submitted to the Board of 
Supervisors for approval. 

1. In addition to the above proposed Charter Amendment, 
the Memorandum of Agreement between the employee 
unions and the City presently provides for the extension of the 
existing Pay Equity Agreement between the City and the 
SEIU Joint Council for another two years. According to Mr. 
John Madden of the Controller's Office, extension of Pay 
Equity would result in an increase in costs to the City of 
roughly $16 million over two years. 

2. The draft Memorandum of Agreement provides that the 
City cannot layoff any permanent represented employees for 
FY 1991-92. The Mayor's Budget as submitted to the Board of 
Supervisors includes the elimination of a number of filled 
positions. Based on the draft Memorandum of Agreement. 
these positions would have to remain funded. 

3. The draft Memorandum of Agreement also provides that 
the City implement a family dental coverage for all City 
employees represented by SEIU. According to Mr. Madden. 
the family dental coverage would cost the City roughly 
between $13 million and $15 million, annually.

Charter Amendment 



Draft: 



Section Affected; 



Description; 



Comments: 



First 

The proposed Charter Amendment would reclassify the 
Position of 8222 Housing Police Officer with peace officer status 
and authority pursuant to California Penal Code Section 830.1 
and permit these officers to participate in the Sergeant's 
promotional examination, subject them to discipline under 
Section 8.343 of the San Francisco Charter and allow 
determination of their working conditions under Section 8.590 
et seq of the San Francisco Charter. Section 8.590 describes 
arbitration for wage and benefit disputes for the Fire 
Department, Police Department and Airport Police Officers. 

The 8222 Housing Police Officers were transferred from the 
San Francisco Housing Authority to the Police Department in 
1983 by Charter Section 3.530-3. The Police Department reports 
that the 8222 Housing Police Officers have been performing 
similar duties as Q2 Police Officers since 1983. 

If the San Francisco Police Commission creates a new Police 
Officer classification, the Commission shall have the authority 
to grant Housing Police Officers employed by the City and 
County of San Francisco as of January 1, 1992 status to the new 
classification provided that the individuals comply with each of 
the State mandated requirements for full peace officer status 
and provided further that the new classification shall perform 
a significant portion of the duties and responsibilities of Police 
Officers of the City and County of San Francisco. 

Employees granted status to the new classification shall be 
subject to the same terms and conditions of employment as 
Police Officers of the City and County of San Francisco, and if 
otherwise qualified, shall be eligible to participate in the Civil 
Service examination for the Q50 Police Sergeant classification. 

1. Ms. Vicki Clayton of the City Attorney's Office reports that 
Q2 Police Officers are subject to an examination, background 
investigation, and polygraph test. The Police Department 
reports that the proposed new classification to replace the 
current classification of the 8222 Housing Police Officers would 
not be subject to these requirements

2. The Police Commission approved the new classification for 
8222 Housing Police Officers at its July 10, 1991 meeting. 
However, the new classification has not yet been approved by 
the Civil Service Commission. According to Mr. Monte 
Mansir of the Civil Service Commission, the creation of the 
new Housing Police Officer classification could be 
accomplished by the approval of the Police Commission and 
the Civil Service Commission without amending the City 
Charter. 



3. Lt. Ed Pecinovsky of the Police Department reports that the 
Police Department intends to phase out the 8222 Housing Police 
Officers through attrition, and replace existing 8222 Housing 
Police Officers directly with Q2 Police Officers. 



Effect on the Cost 

of Government: Captain Tony Ribera of the Police Department reports that 
there are currently 14 8222 Housing Police Officers, which 
earn between $35,209 and $42,647 annually for an annual total 
of approximately $492,925 to $597,058. The salary range for a 
Q2 Police Officer is between $37,976 and $43,979 annually for an 
annual total of approximately $531,664 to $615,706 for 14 
positions. Therefore, the increase in salaries would result in 
approximately $18,648 to $38,739 in additional costs to the City. 

Ms. Clare Murphy of the Employees Retirement System 
reports that the 8222 Housing Police Officers currently are 
members of the State Public Employees Retirement System 
(PERS) and the City did not make a contribution to PERS for 
these employees during FY 1990-91 because the aggregate total 
in San Francisco's PERS Account for all safety employees with 
PERS, based upon previous contributions, was enough to cover 
retirement benefits for the 8222 Housing Police Officers. 
However, Ms. Murphy also reports that the City may have to 
make a contribution to PERS for these employees during FY 
1991-92 given the proposed State reduction of $1.6 billion from 
PERS in the State's FY 1991-92 budget. Ms. Murphy notes that 
the possible impact on San Francisco from the proposed State 
reduction of PERS has not yet been determined. Ms. Murphy 
indicates that the Employees Retirement System has not been 
asked to determine whether the proposed newly classified 8222 
Housing Police Officers would be subject to the 67 percent 
retirement contribution rate which the City must currently 
expend for Q2 Police Officers. If the 14 8222 Housing Police 
Officers were subject to the 67 percent retirement contribution

Skeletal 



Part III of the City's Municipal Code 

The proposed ordinance would amend the City's Municipal 
Code by eliminating the existing Parking Tax percentage 
formula and replacing it with a $13 per parking stall per 
month fee. In addition, the proposed ordinance would 
establish a special rate to be paid for parking stalls used for 
special events and for parking stalls that are privately 
owned but do not generate revenue. As of the writing of this 
report, the proposed ordinance has not yet been drafted. As 
such, the definitions of special events and the privately 
owned stalls that do not generate revenue have not yet been 
established. In addition, the fees for the special event stalls 
and the privately owned non-revenue generating stalls 
have not yet been established. Mr. Jack Doherty of the City 
Attorney's Office reports that the draft of the proposed 
ordinance will be ready by July 15, 1991.

Comments: 



Effect on the 

Cost of Government: 



1. According to Ms. Julie DiGregorio, representative of the 
Parking Industry, a study conducted by Twitchel 
Consultants reported that San Francisco currently has 
approximately 109,049 parking stalls in the downtown area 
and 80,000 parking stalls in the rest of the City for a total of 
approximately 190,000 parking stalls Citywide. 

2. Mr. Tim Johnson of the Department of Parking and 
Traffic reports that DPT is unable to concur with the 
estimated 190,000 parking stalls in San Francisco. The 
Budget Analyst notes that the 190,000 estimate includes 
parking stalls located at gas stations, under the freeway, 
hotels and other parking areas that do not necessarily 
generate revenue. According to Mr. Bill Wycko of the 
Department of City Planning, there are approximately 
50,000 parking stalls in the downtown area and 59,000 
parking stalls in the rest of the City for a total of 
approximately 109,000 stalls Citywide. Mr. Richard 
Sullivan of the Tax Collector's Office reports that 109,000 is 
a reasonable estimate of the number of parking stalls in the 
City. Mr. Wycko advises that the 109,000 is only an estimate 
and that the Department of City Planning will be 
conducting a new survey of parking stalls sometime in 
August of 1991. 



1. As noted above in Comment No. 2, the 190,000 estimate of 
parking stalls in San Francisco includes non-revenue 
generating stalls. The exact number of these non-revenue 
generating stalls is not known. 

2. Because the draft of the proposed ordinance has not been 
written, the Budget Analyst is not able to determine which 
non-revenue generating privately owned parking stalls 
would be included in the proposed ordinance. 

3. Using the proposed $13 per month parking stall fee and 
the Parking Industry's estimated 190,000 parking stalls, the 
proposed ordinance would generate approximately 
$29,640,000 (excluding the special rates for parking stalls 
used for special events and for the privately owned non- 
revenue generating parking stalls). Using the Department 
of City Planning's estimate of 109,000 parking stalls, the 
proposed ordinance would generate approximately 
$17,004,000 (again, excluding the special rates for parking 
stalls used for special events and for the privately owned 
non-revenue generating parking stalls).

4. The City currently collects approximately $24 million 
annually, including $6 million allocated to the Senior 
Citizens Programs Fund, from the City's Parking Tax 
based on a 15 percent Parking Tax and a five percent 
Parking Tax Surcharge rate of parking fees charged at 
City-owned garages and privately owned garages. In 
addition, the Mayor's 1991-92 budget includes $5.5 million 
(11 months in fiscal year 1991-92) in revenue to be generated 
by increasing the City's Parking Tax Surcharge by five 
percent for a total of $29.5 million in revenue generated by 
the Parking Tax for fiscal year 1991-92. The ordinance 
proposing this additional five percent Parking Tax 
Surcharge increase is currently pending before the Finance 
Committee. 

5. The proposed ordinance is based on a flat fee and does 
not include provisions for inflation. The current parking 
tax, which is based on a percent of the rate paid, 
automatically increases revenues to the City as rates or 
total parking revenues increase. Under the proposed 
ordinance, the Board of Supervisors would have to amend 
the ordinance to increase the parking stall rate. 

6. According to Mr. Sullivan, the proposed ordinance does 
not take into account the various prices charged at different 
parking lots throughout the City or that no revenue is 
generated from some of these parking spaces. For 
example, one parking lot downtown may charge $1 for every 
30 minutes or approximately $16 per day to park in one stall 
while a smaller lot in a more inconvenient location charges 
$4 for the entire day for one stall and another parking lot 
does not charge its customers for parking. Under the 
proposed ordinance, all of the parking lots would pay the 
same for each stall regardless of the amount of revenue the 
parking lot generates from the stalls. According to Mr. 
Sullivan, this could result in less parking revenues and less 
profits at the smaller, less expensive parking lots which, in 
turn, could decrease the amount of revenues which the City 
would be able to generate under the proposed fixed fee plan. 
In addition, the valet parking lots can accommodate more 
cars per square foot than the nonvalet parking lots, making 
it difficult to estimate the actual number of parking stalls.

7. The proposed parking stall fee is not a special tax and 
would be deposited to the City's General Fund. If this 
legislation were approved, it is anticipated that the Mayor 
and the Board of Supervisors would then appropriate a 
portion of these funds for use by the Commission on Aging 
to continue to provide services for senior citizens since 
presently, as previously noted, approximately $6 million 
from the City's Parking Tax is annually appropriated to the 
Senior Citizens Programs Fund.

Draft: 

Sections Affected: 



Description: 



Charter Amendment 

First 

The proposed Charter Amendment would amend Section 
3.661 relating to the powers and duties of the Civil Service 
Commission. 

The proposed Charter Amendment would enable the Civil 
Service to promulgate and to implement rules pertaining to 
the use of performance evaluations, position classifications 
and departmental reorganizations. 

According to Mr. A. Lee Munson of the Civil Service 
Commission, the current system encourages an excessive 
number of classifications and unnecessary departmental 
reorganizations as managers seek to gain additional 
flexibility in their staffing and hiring decisions. The Civil 
Service Commission also lacks the authority to freeze the 
excess wages associated with incorrectly classified 
positions. The proposed Amendment would eUminate the 
clause stating that allocation or reallocation of a position 
cannot adversely affect an incumbent and, therefore, would 
allow the Civil Service to freeze the salaries of employees 
whose positions are wrongly classified. Furthermore, Mr. 
Munson reports that a greater emphasis on performance 
evaluations would enhance and legitimize the promotional 
opportunities for existing employees and would enhance the 
City's efforts in recruiting well-qualified candidates. Mr. 
Munson states that the proposed Charter Amendment 
would assist in resolving these problems.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

July 22, 1991 Recessed Special Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Comments: 1. According to Mr. Munson, City department heads do not 

use performance evaluations consistently. Mr. Munson 
states that greater flexibility in the use of performance 
evaluations would not only allow managers to differentiate 
employees on the quality of their work but would also 
motivate employees by giving them an incentive to excel. By 
placing a greater emphasis on the content and consistency 
of performance evaluations, the Commission is attempting 
to promote productive and self-motivated employees while 
also deterring the promotion of lackadaisical workers. He 
also reports that in a recent survey, approximately 30 
departmental personnel officers responded that an 
improved candidate pool could reduce their permanent staff 
by 1 to 2 percent on average. 

2. Mr. Munson states that in the short term, greater 
classification flexibility would enable the Commission to 
"red-circle" classifications where departments had actually 
down-graded the job requirements and to freeze the salary 
levels of those employees who are wrongly classified. 
According to the City Attorney's Office, the proposed 
Charter Amendment would give the Civil Service 
Commission the authority to freeze wages of incumbent 
employees who are classified at a higher level than their 
present jobs necessitate. If the Commission had the 
authority to freeze an employee's wages, it would maintain 
the existing salary level and would deny any annual 
increases until the sum of those annual increases 
combined with the base salary for the appropriate 
classification equals the current salary level. Once the 
employee has caught up to the current salary level for the 
classification which accurately reflects the job 
requirements, the Commission would lift the salary freeze. 

3. The proposed Charter Amendment would also 
strengthen the Commission's ability to investigate and to 
respond to managerial infractions of Civil Service 
procedures, which are based on the premise of a merit 
system. Mr. Munson states that this proposed Amendment 
would give the Commission the authority to respond to 
employee grievances and, in extreme cases, to rescind 
improper appointments and to file charges of misconduct 
against the offending manager. The Commission would be 
able to subpoena witnesses and records relevant to its 
investigation.

4. It should be noted that the Mayor's Office and the 
Employee Relations Division are presently negotiating with 
the employee groups to place a collective bargaining 
agreement and related Charter Amendments on the 
November, 1991 ballot. According to Ms. Maggie Jacobsen of 
the Employee Relations Division, the specific details of the 
final collective bargaining Memorandum of Agreement 
have yet to be agreed upon by the Unions and the City. Once 
completed, the final Memorandum of Agreement will be 
submitted to the Board of Supervisors for ratification. 

5. The proposed collective bargaining Memorandum of 
Agreement also includes a clause that requires the Service 
Employees International Union (SEIU) and the Civil 
Service Commission to mutually agree on the proposed 
Civil Service Charter Amendments referred to the Board of 
Supervisors. However, Mr. John Holtzman of the City 
Attorney's Office does not agree with this requirement, and 
as of the writing of this report, this issue has not yet been 
resolved with the SEIU. Mr. Holtzman further states that 
irrespective of the Civil Service clause in the draft 
Memorandum of Agreement, the Board of Supervisors has 
the power to consider any proposed Charter Amendment 
submitted by the Civil Service Commission. As of the 
writing of this report, Civil Service is still in meet and 
confer sessions with the various employee organizations on 
the proposed Charter Amendments. 

Effect on the Cost 

of Government: Mr. Munson states that the Commission does not anticipate 

that the proposed Charter Amendment will increase 
personnel costs over their present budgeted level because 
improvements in the eligible list structure will make 
department heads more amenable to reductions in the 
number of permanent position classifications. 

Although the Commission has not conducted any detailed 
statistical research of the classification system at this time, 
Mr. Munson estimates that if even 50 positions within the 
City's 1,680 miscellaneous classifications are' over-classified 
by 20 percent, the savings from freezing wages could total 
$500,000, on an annual basis.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

July 22, 1991 Recessed Special Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 



Mr. Munson states that the Civil Service Commission is 
attempting to stimulate greater productivity from a smaller 
number of City employees through these reforms. 
According to Mr. Munson, the Civil Service Commission 
estimates from a survey of 30 departmental personnel 
officers that if departments are able to hire more qualified 
people from a broader candidate pool that is updated more 
frequently and to eliminate dismissed employees from the 
payroll more quickly, the City could reduce its permanent, 
classified positions by 1 to 2 percent. Therefore, with 
annual personnel expenditures of approximately $1.55 
billion, the City could save $15.5 million to $31 million. 
Based on estimates made by Mr. Munson, approximately 
$300,000 of that $15.5 million to $31 million would be derived 
from the savings associated with the Charter Amendment 
of Section 8.341, relating to the removal and discharge of 
permanent employees (see Item 5, File 223-91-1 of this 
report). 

The Controller's Office advises that the proposed 
amendment should not result in increased costs.

Proposed Ballot

Sections Affected: 



Description: 



Analysis: 



Charter Amendment 

First 

The proposed Charter Amendment would delete Sections 
8.320, 8.321, 8.322, 8.323, 8.324, 8.328, 8.330, 8.331, 8.332 and 
8.340 relating to qualifications, examinations, eligible lists, 
provisional appointments and dismissal during probation, 
and would add new Section 8.320-1 incorporating the 
provisions of the above sections into the Civil Service 
Commission rules. 

Presently, the Civil Service Commission can only change a 
Charter Section applicable to their area of jurisdiction by 
obtaining a Charter Amendment. The adoption of this 
Charter Amendment would enable the Civil Service 
Commission to change its rules without the necessity of a 
Charter Amendment, after meeting and conferring with 
the employee organizations. According to Mr. A. Lee 
Munson of the Civil Service Commission, the current 
process is time-consuming and cumbersome and has 
prevented the Civil Service Commission from addressing its 
present operational and procedural inefficiencies. The 
proposed Charter Amendment would enable the Civil 
Service Commission to modify its existing rules without a 
Charter Amendment, after meeting with the appropriate 
employee organizations and conducting public hearings. 

1. In response to the unsuccessful, large-scale Civil Service 
reform of the 1980's, the Civil Service Commission is 
attempting to initiate a gradual self-modernization. Mr. 
Munson states that the inclusion of specific Civil Service 
regulations in the City Charter is wholly inappropriate. 
The requirements of the Charter hamper all of the Civil 
Service procedures, causing lengthy delays and general 
dissatisfaction among the individuals involved. To change 
its standard operating procedures, the Civil Service 
Commission believes that it must have the capability to 
modify and to establish its own rules. According to Mr. 
Munson, the proposed system would be more efficient for 
and responsive to those individuals who are directly affected 
by the Commission's procedures.

2. Under the proposed Charter Amendment, the 
Commission would maintain the existing wording of the 
Sections. Although the Civil Service Commission would 
have complete control over the content of proposed rule 
changes, it would be accountable to the public and to 
employee representatives. When a rule change is proposed, 
the Commission would meet and confer with employee 
representatives and would hold public hearings to assess 
the level of support for and/or opposition to the proposed 
change. Neither the Mayor nor the Board of Supervisors 
would have an oversight role in the rule-making process. 
Mr. Munson believes that this type of administrative 
discretion is appropriate for the Commission because it has 
expert knowledge on these procedural issues. 

3. If this Charter Amendment is approved, Mr. Munson 
states that the Civil Service Commission plans to develop a 
candidate pool based on a continuous list structure, a 
system currently used by the nine largest cities and 
counties in California. Because of the Charter Section 
regarding duration of lists (Section 8.330), the Civil Service 
Commission cannot institute a continuous list system. 
Presently, the Civil Service Commission offers 375 exams 
annually. From those exams, the Commission develops 
eligible lists, each with a four-year duration, containing 
three possible candidates. According to Mr. Munson, 
department managers will not select employees from old 
lists. To avoid hiring the last candidate, managers allow 
the list to expire, and in the interim, hire individuals on a 
temporary basis. The proposed system of continuous lists 
would enable the Commission to update the lists 
continually with those candidates who scored the highest 
on the most recent test date. Mr. Munson states that by 
offering the most qualified candidate pool to department 
heads, this system will increase productivity. Departments 
will require fewer of these more productive and motivated 
employees to accomplish the same quantity of work. 

4. It should be noted that the Mayor's Office and the 
Employee Relations Division are presently negotiating with 
the employee groups to place a collective bargaining 
agreement and related Charter Amendments on the 
November, 1991 ballot. According to Ms. Maggie Jacobsen of 
the Employee Relations Division, the specific details of the 
final collective bargaining Memorandum of Agreement 
have yet to be agreed upon by the Unions and the City. Once 
completed, the final Memorandum of Agreement will be 
submitted to the Board of Supervisors for ratification.

5. The proposed collective bargaining Memorandum of 
Agreement also includes a clause that requires the Service 
Employees International Union (SEIU) and the Civil 
Service Commission to mutually agree on the proposed 
Civil Service Charter Amendments before such Charter 
Amendments are referred to the Board of Supervisors. 
However, Mr. John Holtzman of the City Attorney's Office 
does not agree with this requirement, and as of the writing 
of this report, this issue has not yet been resolved with the 
SEIU. Mr. Holtzman further states that irrespective of the 
Civil Service clause in the draft Memorandum of 
Agreement, the Board of Supervisors has the power to 
consider any proposed Charter Amendment submitted by 
the Civil Service Commission. As of the writing of this 
report, Civil Service is still in meet and confer sessions with 
the various employee organizations on the proposed 
Charter Amendments. 

Effect on the Cost 

of Government: If the proposed Charter Amendment is passed, the Civil 

Service Commission will determine its own rules and 
regulations with the input of employee representatives and 
the public. According to Mr. Munson, the Commission 
does not anticipate any additional costs to be associated with 
these procedures. The input of the public and employee 
representatives would become a part of the Commission's 
regular agenda, occurring during the normal meeting 
times. Mr. Munson said that the Commission would 
allocate a greater portion of the meeting time for procedural 
matters and, therefore, would not incur any additional 
hearing expenses. 

The Controller's Office advises that the proposed 
amendment should not affect the cost of government.

Charter Amendment 

First 

The proposed Charter amendment would amend Section 8.329 
relating to the certification of eligible candidates. 

The proposed Charter amendment would change Section 8.329 
relating to the "Rule of Three." Presently, when a City 
department requests the filling of a Civil Service position, the 
Civil Service Commission certifies the three highest ranking 
candidates on the list to be considered for the vacant position. If 
more than three candidates are eligible to be considered because 
of identical examination scores, Civil Service must break the tie 
using a lottery procedure. 

The proposed Charter amendment would allow a minimum of 
all candidates with the three highest examination scores to be 
certified and considered for the vacant position, thereby 
eliminating the use of a lottery procedure. 

1. San Francisco changed from the Rule of One candidate to the 
Rule of Three candidates in the mid-1970's. According to Mr. A. 
Lee Munson of the Civil Service Commission, San Francisco still 
has the most restrictive certification standards of the nine 
largest California cities and counties recently surveyed. The 
Civil Service Commission is proposing a Charter Amendment 
that would allow the certification of a minimum of those 
candidates with the three highest scores. 

2. According to Mr. Munson , a broader candidate pool will offer 
managers more flexibility in their hiring decisions. Mr. 
Munson added that the flexibility derived from a larger 
candidate pool does not mean that departments will have an 
opportunity to discriminate, as many employee representatives 
suspect. Mr. Munson said that the Commission plans to 
institute a reporting mechanism in the near future to monitor 
the racial, ethnic and gender composition of new departmental 
employees. To ensure that no pattern of discrimination exists, 
the Commission would compare a department's selection to the 
candidates on the eligible list.

3. According to Mr. Munson, the Commission believes that a 
broader candidate selection pool will deter departments from 
adding unnecessary classifications or hiring temporary 
employees rather than permanently filling their vacancies. Mr. 
Munson states that increasing the number of eligibles certified 
for a vacant position would reduce the City's overall number of 
classifications. 

4. It should be noted that the Mayor's Office and the Employee 
Relations Division are presently negotiating with the employee

Effect on the Cost 

of Government: Mr. Munson stated that the Civil Service Commission does not 

anticipate any additional costs associated with changing the 
rule of three candidates to the rule of three highest scores.

Comments: 



Charter Amendment 

First 

The proposed Charter Amendment would amend Section 
8.341 relating to the removal or discharge of permanent 
employees. 

The proposed Charter Amendment would change Section 
8.341 to allow the City to terminate employees and provide 
appeal rights to terminated employees in the form of a post- 
termination grievance procedure. Presently, the City must 
keep permanent employees charged with dismissal on the 
payroll until a proceeding before a hearing officer is held. 

The proposed Charter Amendment would allow the 
appointing officer, or designee, to terminate the employee or 
place the employee on unpaid administrative leave, and allow 
dismissed employees to arbitrate the initial decision of 
discharge or suspension. If the decision reaches arbitration, 
the hearing officer has the authority to affirm or reverse the 
previous decision of termination. The proposed Amendment 
also allows the hearing officer to order back-payment of 
salary for the period in which the employee was discharged 
or removed and to expunge the personnel record of the 
employee. 

1. Mr. A. Lee Munson of the Civil Service Commission 
estimates that the average salary level, including benefits, for 
a City employee is $40,000 per year. Currently, 
approximately 90 dismissal proceedings are conducted each 
year. In most cases, a hearing officer makes a decision 
within thirty days of the charges being filed, and usually, the 
hearing officer's decision removes the employee from the City 
payroll. However, because of delays in the dismissal 
proceedings, the entire process may exceed thirty days. 
According to Civil Service, that dismissal process lasts an 
average of six weeks. According to Mr. Munson, the 
proposed Charter Amendment would remove discharged 
employees from the City payroll immediately following the 
Department appointing officer's decision. Termination of the 
employee from the payroll could be made within two weeks. 
Assuming an acceleration of the dismissal process by four 
weeks, Civil Service estimates that this proposed change 
could save the City approximately $300,000, annually.

the final Memorandum of Agreement and corresponding 
draft Charter Amendments will be submitted to the Board of 
Supervisors for approval. 

1. In addition to the above proposed Charter Amendment, 
the Memorandum of Agreement between the employee 
unions and the City presently provides for the extension of the 
existing Pay Equity Agreement between the City and the 
SEIU Joint Council for another two years. According to Mr. 
John Madden of the Controller's Office, extension of Pay 
Equity would result in an increase in costs to the City of 
roughly $16 million over two years.

2. The draft Memorandum of Agreement provides that the 
City cannot layoff any permanent represented employees for 
FY 1991-92. The Mayor's Budget as submitted to the Board of 
Supervisors includes the elimination of a number of filled 
positions. Based on the draft Memorandum of Agreement, 
these positions would have to remain funded. 

3. The draft Memorandum of Agreement also provides that 
the City implement a family dental coverage for all City 
employees represented by SEIU. According to Mr. Madden, 
the family dental coverage would cost the City roughly 
between $13 million and $15 million, annually. 

Effect on the Cost 

of Government: Mr. Madden advises that, as of the writing of this report, 

because the outcome of the collective bargaining agreement 
has not yet been determined, the Controller is unable to 
certify the potential costs to government, if any, of the 
proposed Charter Amendment.

Item 7 -File 190-91-1 

NOTE: This item was tabled at the Administrative and Oversight Committee 
meeting of July 15, 1991. 



Proposed Ballot 
Measure: 



Charter Amendment 



Draft: 



Section Affected: 



Description; 



Comments: 



First 

The proposed Charter Amendment would reclassify the 
Position of 8222 Housing Police Officer with peace officer status 
and authority pursuant to California Penal Code Section 830.1 
and permit these officers to participate in the Sergeant's 
promotional examination, subject them to discipline under 
Section 8.343 of the San Francisco Charter and allow 
determination of their working conditions under Section 8.590 
et seq of the San Francisco Charter. Section 8.590 describes 
arbitration for wage and benefit disputes for the Fire 
Department, Police Department and Airport Police Officers. 

The 8222 Housing Police Officers were transferred from the 
San Francisco Housing Authority to the Police Department in 
1983 by Charter Section 3.530-3. The Police Department reports 
that the 8222 Housing Police Officers have been performing 
similar duties as Q2 Police Officers since 1983. 

If the San Francisco Police Commission creates a new Police 
Officer classification, the Commission shall have the authority 
to grant Housing Police Officers employed by the City and 
County of San Francisco as of January 1, 1992 status to the new 
classification provided that the individuals comply with each of 
the State mandated requirements for full peace officer status 
and provided further that the new classification shall perform 
a significant portion of the duties and responsibilities of Police 
Officers of the City and County of San Francisco. 

Employees granted status to the new classification shall be 
subject to the same terms and conditions of employment as 
Police Officers of the City and County of San Francisco, and if 
otherwise qualified, shall be eligible to participate in the Civil 
Service examination for the Q50 Police Sergeant classification. 

1. Ms. Vicki Clayton of the City Attorney's Office reports that 
Q2 Police Officers are subject to an examination, background 
investigation, and polygraph test. The Police Department 
reports that the proposed new classification to replace the 
current classification of the 8222 Housing Police Officers would 
not be subject to these requirements.

2. The Police Commission approved the new classification for 
8222 Housing Police Officers at its July 10, 1991 meeting. 
However, the new classification has not yet been approved by 
the Civil Service Commission. According to Mr. Monte 
Mansir of the Civil Service Commission, the creation of the 
new Housing Police Officer classification could be 
accomplished by the approval of the Police Commission and 
the Civil Service Commission without amending the City 
Charter. 



3. Lt. Ed Pecinovsky of the Police Department reports that the 
Police Department intends to phase out the 8222 Housing Police 
Officers through attrition, and replace existing 8222 Housing 
Police Officers directly with Q2 Police Officers. 



Effect on the Cost 

of Government: Captain Tony Ribera of the Police Department reports that 
there are currently 14 8222 Housing Police Officers, which 
earn between $35,209 and $42,647 annually for an annual total 
of approximately $492,925 to $597,058. The salary range for a 
Q2 Police Officer is between $37,976 and $43,979 annually for an 
annual total of approximately $531,664 to $615,706 for 14 
positions. Therefore, the increase in salaries would result in 
approximately $18,648 to $38,739 in additional costs to the City. 

Ms. Clare Murphy of the Employees Retirement System 
reports that the 8222 Housing Police Officers currently are 
members of the State Public Employees Retirement System 
(PERS) and the City did not make a contribution to PERS for 
these employees during FY 1990-91 because the aggregate total 
in San Francisco's PERS Account for all safety employees with 
PERS, based upon previous contributions, was enough to cover 
retirement benefits for the 8222 Housing Police Officers. 
However, Ms. Murphy also reports that the City may have to 
make a contribution to PERS for these employees during FY 
1991-92 given the proposed State reduction of $1.6 billion from 
PERS in the State's FY 1991-92 budget. Ms. Murphy notes that 
the possible impact on San Francisco from the proposed State 
reduction of PERS has not yet been determined. Ms. Murphy 
indicates that the Employees Retirement System has not been 
asked to determine whether the proposed newly classified 8222 
Housing Police Officers would be subject to the 67 percent 
retirement contribution rate which the City must currently 
expend for Q2 Police Officers. If the 14 8222 Housing Police 
Officers were subject to the 67 percent retirement contribution

Items 2 - Files 89-91-9 

1. The proposed resolution would authorize employees in various 
classifications to enroll in the State Disability Insurance (SDI) Program. The cost 
of SDI coverage would be paid by the employees through normal payroll 
deductions. The proposed legislation would not involve significant cost to the City 
as the Controller's payroll/personnel system is programmed to include this 
deduction. 

2. SDI pays disability benefits to employees who suffer a non-industrial 
injury or illness. SDI-eligible employees have been paying into the SDI system 
since July 1, 1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1% of the first $31,767 of 
gross salary for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While SDI 
coverage is mandatory for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in the 
SDI program, it is not mandatory that employee classifications which are not 
represented by a bargaining unit be included in the SDI program unless a 
majority of employees within the classification requests coverage. 

3. The following three classifications which are not represented by a 
bargaining unit would be authorized to enroll in the State Disability Program 
under the proposed resolution.

Item 3 - File 89-91-13 

1. The proposed resolution would authorize enrollment of classification 
0591 Superior Court Clerk in the State Disability Insurance (SDI) Program. The 
cost of SDI coverage would be paid by the employees through normal payroll 
deductions. The proposed legislation would not involve significant cost to the City 
as the Controller's payroll/personnel system is programmed to include this

2. SDI pays disability benefits to employees who suffer a non-industrial

since July 1, 1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1% of the first $31,767 of 
gross salary for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While SDI 
coverage is mandatory for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in the 
SDI program, it is not mandatory that employee classifications which are not 
represented by a bargaining unit be included in the SDI program unless a 
majority of employees within the classification requests coverage. 

3. The following classification in the Superior Court which is not 
represented by a bargaining unit would be authorized to enroll in the State 
Disability Program under the proposed resolution:

Position Classification Employees 

0591 Superior Court Clerk 1 

4. The Employee Relations Division (ERD) reports that it has received a 
letter requesting coverage signed by the sole employee in the 0591 Superior Court 
Clerk classification. 

Comment 

The proposed authorization of SDI coverage for the 0591 Superior Court 
Clerk classification is necessary in order to continue such SDI coverage for four 
8113 Court Clerk positions in the County Clerk budget that are being transferred 
to the 0591 Superior Court Clerk personnel classification. (The Superior Court 
personnel classification system is outside the Civil Service system.) The four 
employees will continue performing the same duties at the same pay rates. One 
employee was transferred on July 1, 1991, and the remaining three will be 
transferred on October 1, 1991. The four new 0591 Superior Court Clerk positions 
will be submitted for classification in the 1992-93 budget request. All four 
employees have requested SDI coverage in the 0591 Superior Court Clerk 
classification. Ms. Jean Smith of ERD explains that a majority of the current 
employees (only one employee at present) in the classification must request SDI 
coverage and that any other employees appointed to that classification in the 
future will automatically have SDI coverage if the proposed Legislation passes.

classification. 

5. The title of the proposed resolution incorrectly lists classification 0710 
Phonographic Reporter as 1710 Phonographic Reporter. Therefore, the title of the 
proposed resolution should be amended to reflect classification 0710 Phonographic 
Reporter. 

Recommendation 

Amend the title of the proposed resolution to include classification 0710 
Phonographic Reporter instead of classification 1710 Phonographic Reporter. 
Approve the proposed resolution as amended.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

August 13, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 23 - File 104-91-1 

1. This item is a hearing to consider Civil Service Staffs Report No. 2215-91, 
which is a certification of wage schedules for Transit Operators pursuant to 
Section 8.404 of the Charter for Fiscal Year 1991-92. 

2. Charter Section 8.404 provides that the Board of Supervisors fix a wage 
schedule for each classification of platform employees and coach and bus 
operators of the Municipal Railway (MUNI), which does not exceed the average of 
the two highest rates found in the Civil Service survey of wage rates paid to transit 
operators in municipalities with a population of not less than 500,000 and 
normally employing not less than 400 operators. (See attachment for the results of 
this survey). In prior years, this Charter Section has been approved by the Board 
of Supervisors to provide that the wages for MUNI platform operators are set at 
the average of the two highest rates found in the survey. 

3. The current basic hourly rate for Transit Operators employed by MUNI is 
$17.55 per hour. The MUNI Operator Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for 
1991-92 indicates that the effective hourly rate will remain $17.55 through June 30, 
1992 because the MUNI operators have agreed to a wage freeze. City 
Miscellaneous employees are also under a wage freeze for 1991-92. Therefore, 
according to Mr. George Newkirk of MUNI, the earliest any wage increase could 
take affect is July 1, 1992 after the MOU is renegotiated. 

4. The Civil Service survey of transit districts found that the highest transit 
wages are paid by the Santa Clara County Transit District ($17.53 per hour 
effective July 1, 1991 and $18.41 per hour effective March 2, 1992), and the 
Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority in Washington, D.C. ($17.64 per 
hour effective July 1, 1991). The current average of the wages paid by these two 
districts is $17,585 per hour effective July 1, 1991, and $18,025 per hour effective 
March 2, 1992. This represents an increase of $.035 or approximately a .2 percent 
over the current hourly rate of $17.55 as of July 1, 1991, and an additional increase 
of $.44, from $17,585 to $18,025, or approximately a 2.5 percent additional increase 
effective March 2, 1992. If the same percentage increase of .2 percent and an 
additional 2.5 percent were applied to the current trainees' basic rate of $11.06 per 
hour, the new trainees' basic hourly rate would be $11.08 and $11.36 effective 
March 2, 1992. As noted above, MUNI Operators have agreed to a wage freeze for 
1991-92, so the hourly rate will remain at $17.55, and the trainees' rate will 
remain at $11.06.

August 13, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

5. Section 8.404(f) of the Charter also provides for the establishment of a 
Trust Fund for MUNI Operators for vacation, retirement and health service 
benefits. The 1991-92 MUNI budget includes a $10.5 million allocation for the 
Trust Fund. However, the Budget Analyst notes that the MUNI Operator MOU 
for 1991-92, which is subject to approval by the Board of Supervisors, provides for a 
contribution to the Trust Fund for $11,105,000, a difference of $605,000 from the 
budgeted amount for 1991-92. Mr. John Madden of the Controller's Office reports 
that the source of funds for the $605,000 has not yet been identified. 

6. Mr. Will Taylor of the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) reports that 
MUNI has a total of $84,249,300 budgeted for MUNI Operator salaries in FY 1991- 
92, which is approximately 4,800,530 hours at the current hourly rate of $17.55. 
Mr. Taylor explains that the 4,800,530 hours budgeted for FY 1991-92 includes an 
adjustment for overtime and pay premiums. If MUNI Operator wage rates would 
have increased to $17,585 on July 1, 1991, and $18,025 effective March 2, 1992, then 
this would have resulted in approximately $816,000 in additional costs to the City 
for FY 1991-92.

Items 2. 3 and 4 - Files 89-91-10. 89-91-11. 89-91-12 

1. The proposed resolutions would authorize employees in various 
classifications to enroll in the State Disability Insurance (SDI) Program. The cost 
of SDI coverage would be paid by the employees through normal payroll 
deductions. The proposed legislation would not involve significant cost to the City 
as the Controller's payroll/personnel system is programmed to include this 
deduction. 

2. SDI pays disability benefits to employees who suffer a non-industrial 
injury or illness. SDI-eligible employees have been paying into the SDI system 
since July 1, 1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1% of the first $31,767 of 
gross salary for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While SDI 
coverage is mandatory for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in the 
SDI program, it is not mandatory that employee classifications which are not 
represented by a bargaining unit be included in the SDI program unless a 
majority of employees within the classification requests coverage. 

3. The following two classifications in the Municipal Railway (Muni) 
which are not represented by a bargaining unit would be authorized to enroll in 
the State Disability Program under Resolution 89-91-10:

FROM: ^Budget Analyst - Rec*wtv\*ft« SAN francISCO 

SUBJECT: August 23, 1991 Special Administration and Oversight Committee 
Meeting < 

Item 21 - File 104-91-1 

Note: This item was continued by the Administration and Oversight Committee 
at its meeting of August 13, 1991. 

1. This item is a hearing to consider Civil Service Staffs Report No. 2215-91, 
which is a certification of wage schedules for Transit Operators pursuant to 
Section 8.404 of the Charter for Fiscal Year 1991-92. 

2. Charter Section 8.404 provides that the Board of Supervisors fix a wage 
schedule for each classification of platform employees and coach and bus 
operators of the Municipal Railway (MUNI), which does not exceed the average of 
the two highest rates found in the Civil Service survey of wage rates paid to transit 
operators in municipalities with a population of not less than 500,000 and 
normally employing not less than 400 operators. (See attachment for the results of 
this survey). In prior years, this Charter Section has been approved by the Board 
of Supervisors to provide that the wages for MUNI platform operators are set at 
the average of the two highest rates found in the survey. 

3. The current basic hourly rate for Transit Operators employed by MUNI is 
$17.55 per hour. The MUNI Operator Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for 
1991-92 indicates that the effective hourly rate will remain $17.55 through June 30, 
1992 because the MUNI operators have agreed to a wage freeze. City 
Miscellaneous employees are also under a wage freeze for 1991-92. Therefore, 
according to Mr. George Newkirk of MUNI, the earliesl any wage increase could 
take affed is. July 1, L992 after the MOU is renegotiated 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

August 23, 1991 Special Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

4. The Civil Service survey of transit districts found that the highest transit 
wages are paid by the Santa Clara County Transit District ($17.53 per hour 
effective July 1, 1991 and $18.41 per hour effective March 2, 1992), and the 
Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority in Washington, D.C. ($17.64 per 
hour effective July 1, 1991). The current average of the wages paid by these two 
districts is $17,585 per hour effective July 1, 1991, and $18,025 per hour effective 
March 2, 1992. This represents an increase of $.035 or approximately a .2 percent 
over the current hourly rate of $17.55 as of July 1, 1991, and an additional increase 
of $.44, from $17,585 to $18,025, or approximately a 2.5 percent additional increase 
effective March 2, 1992. If the same percentage increase of .2 percent and an 
additional 2.5 percent were applied to the current trainees' basic rate of $11.06 per 
hour, the new trainees' basic hourly rate would be $11.08 and $11.36 effective 
March 2, 1992. As noted above, MUNI Operators have agreed to a wage freeze for 
1991-92, so the hourly rate will remain at $17.55, and the trainees' rate will 
remain at $11.06. 

5. Section 8.404(0 of the Charter also provides for the establishment of a 
Trust Fund for MUNI Operators for vacation, retirement and health service 
benefits. The 1991-92 MUNI budget includes a $10.5 million allocation for the 
Trust Fund. However, the Budget Analyst notes that the MUNI Operator MOU 
for 1991-92, which is subject to approval by the Board of Supervisors, provides for a 
contribution to the Trust Fund for $11,105,000, a difference of $605,000 from the 
budgeted amount for 1991-92. Mr. John Madden of the Controller's Office reports 
that the source of funds for the $605,000 has not yet been identified. 

6. Mr. Will Taylor of the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) reports that 
MUNI has a total of $84,249,300 budgeted for MUNI Operator salaries in FY 1991- 
92, which is approximately 4,800,530 hours at the current hourly rate of $17.55. 
Mr. Taylor explains that the 4,800,530 hours budgeted for FY 1991-92 includes an 
adjustment for overtime and pay premiums. If MUNI Operator wage rates would 
have increased to $17,585 on July 1, 1991, and $18,025 effective March 2, 1992, then 
this would have resulted in approximately $816,000 in additional costs to the City 
for FY 1991-92.

injury or illness. SDI-eligible employees have been paying into the SDI system 
since July 1, 1981. Currently, the payroll deduction is 1% of the first $31,767 of 
gross salary for each employee (maximum of $317.67 annually). While SDI 
coverage is mandatory for all employees within bargaining units enrolled in the 
SDI program, it is not mandatory that employee classifications which are not 
represented by a bargaining unit be included in the SDI program unless a 
majority of employees within the classification requests coverage. 

3. The following classification in the Department of Parking and Traffic's 
Enforcement Division which is not represented by a bargaining unit would be 
authorized to enroll in the State Disability Program under the proposed 
resolution: 

Number of 
Position Classification Employees 

A-104 Assistant Supervisor 9 

4. The following classification in the Office of Chief Administrative Officer 
which is not represented by a bargaining unit would be authorized to enroll in the 
State Disability Program under the proposed resolution: 

Number of 
Position Classification Employees 

9761 Assistant to CAO II 5 

5. The Employee Relations Division (ERD) reports that it has received 
letters requesting coverage signed by a majority of employees in the A-104 
Assistant Supervisor and the 9761 Assistant to CAO II classifications.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

August 27, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 7 -File 128-91-2 

1. This item is a hearing to consider the need for a Very Small Quantity 
Generator Hazardous Waste Collection Program and to consider options for 
providing this service in San Francisco. 

2. According to Mr. Henry Louie of the Department of Public Health's 
Hazardous Waste Permitting Program within the Toxics Division, a Very Small 
Quantity Generator of hazardous waste (VSQG) is defined as any facility or source 
that generates less than 100 kilograms of hazardous waste per month. Examples 
of VSQGs may include painters, small print shops, small automotive shops, and 
jewelers. Approximately 3,500 VSQGs exist within the City and County. The 
Chief Administrative Officer's Solid Waste Management Program has estimated 
that, in 1987, VSQGs generated 1,500 tons of hazardous waste. The Solid Waste 
Management Program does not have a current estimate of the hazardous waste 
generated annually by VSQGs in San Francisco. 

3. Mr. Louie reports that these types of businesses may generate hazardous 
wastes, which are considered toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive, in the form 
of solvents, acids, paints, or any petroleum based chemicals. However, VSQGs 
generally do not accumulate enough hazardous waste to warrant collection by 
large scale hazardous waste storage/treatment facilities. As a result, VSQGs 
must arrange to dispose of their hazardous wastes with a facility willing to accept 
small quantities of hazardous waste. According to Mr. Louie, one such facility, 
Advanced Environmental Technology, located in Richmond, accepted self-hauled 
waste from VSQGs up until a year ago, but has since ceased accepting self-hauled 
waste from VSQGs. The facility is in the process of working with the State 
Department of Health Services to modify its permit to accept self-hauled wastes. 
Presently, no storage/treatment facility that can serve VSQGs operates in San 
Francisco. 

4. In FY 1990-91, DPH reports that it received 220 referrals from the 
Department of Public Works, Bureau of Street Cleaning, to investigate abandoned 
containers of unknown waste left on street corners and sidewalks. DPH has also 
received reports from the Port and the Recreation and Parks Departments of 
significant amounts of abandoned waste left on Port and Recreation and Parks 
property. Because the waste is abandoned on City property, the City becomes 
responsible for disposing of the hazardous waste. Mr. Louie advises that although 
much of the abandoned waste is simply household paint or paint thinners left by 
City residents, some of the abandoned waste may come from VSQGs. According to 
Mr. Bill Quan of the Chief Administrative Officer's Solid Waste Management 
Program, some VSQGs may be illegally dumping their hazardous wastes into the 

er or in the garbage. 



BOARD OF SUPKKVISOBS 
BUDGET ANALYST 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

August 27, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

5. In order to minimize the abandonment or illegal dumping of hazardous 
waste by VSQGs, a storage/treatment facility must be made available to VSQGs to 
allow VSQGs to properly dispose of their hazardous waste. Mr. Quan states that 
because no storage/treatment facility currently exists in the City and County, the 
City may have to subsidize, either partially or in total, the storage/treatment and 
disposal of waste generated by VSQGs. The amount of the subsidy would depend 
on the amount that VSQGs would be willing to pay for storage/treatment of their 
hazardous waste. 

6. The City could subsidize the storage/treatment of hazardous waste from 
VSQGs in one of three ways. One alternative would be to construct a hazardous 
waste storage/treatment facility to accept hazardous waste generated by VSQGs. 
VSQGs could then transport their waste to the facility for storage/treatment or the 
facility, itself, could provide a collection service to pick up the hazardous waste at 
each VSQG site. A fee would be charged to pay for the cost of the facility and to 
store and treat the waste at an out-of-County facility. Mr. Quan roughly estimates 
that the cost to operate a storage/treatment facility for VSQGs may range from $10 
per gallon to $200 per gallon of waste disposed. The actual cost would depend on 
the amount of waste generated by VSQGs, and the frequency of collection. 

7. Another alternative under consideration by the Solid Waste 
Management Program is to provide a "milk-run" collection service, whereby the 
City would contract with a hauler to collect hazardous waste from VSQGs and 
transport the material to an out-of-County storage/treatment site. Under this 
alternative, the hauler would charge a fee to transport and arrange for the 
storage/treatment of the hazardous waste by the storage/treatment facility. The 
City would subsidize the hauler's costs. According to Mr. Quan, the nearest out- 
of-County facility capable of disposing of VSQG hazardous waste is located in 
Richmond, operated by Advanced Environmental Technology. The Solid Waste 
Management Program has budgeted $150,000 in its FY 1991-92 budget to partially 
subsidize limited milk-run service to small print shops and painters. However 
Mr. Quan advises that the $150,000 would be insufficient to provide milk-run 
service City-wide. 

8. A third alternative is the possibility of expanding the present household 
waste storage/treatment facility located at the solid waste transfer station near 
Candlestick Park, or expanding an existing waste water and oil waste 
storage/treatment facility operated by H and H Company and located in the China 
Basin area. Mr. Quan advises that both facilities would require the installation of 
special storage tanks to accept waste materials generated by VSQGs. 

9. According to Mr. Quan, the Solid Waste Management Program has not 
yet determined precise cost estimates for each of the above alternatives. Mr. Quan 
states that a market research study, which would cost between $10,000 and $20,000 
to complete, would be required to determine the amount of hazardous waste 
generated by VSQGs, the amount that VSQGs would be willing to pay for 
storage/treatment of their hazardous waste, and the estimated costs of providing 
such storage/treatment services.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

August 27, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

10. Mr. Quan further states that funds to pay for the study and to 
subsequently subsidize a hazardous waste disposal alternative would come from 
garbage rate revenues allocated to the City's garbage rate impound account, 
which the Solid Waste Management Program uses to fund its various waste 
management programs.

PwitfLiC ' KAHY 



Pursuant to a request from the Administration and Oversight Committee 
on August 23, 1991, the Budget Analyst is providing the following information on 
the Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) which are scheduled to be acted on by 
the Board of Supervisors at its meeting of September 3, 1991. 

The Board of Supervisors previously approved a proposed Charter 
Amendment for the November, 1991 ballot relating to collective bargaining and 
early retirement. In negotiations with the employee unions, the City agreed, 
through these MOUs, to place the collective bargaining Charter Amendment on 
the November, 1991 ballot, as well as implement other terms and conditions of 
employment in exchange for the employee unions' acceptance of the FY 1991-92 
wage freeze. The following resolutions would ratify MOUs negotiated by the 
Mayor's Office and its Employee Relations Division with various employee unions. 

In order to isolate MOU provisions that result in a budgetary impact over 
current conditions, we have concentrated on cost provisions that represent 
changes from current Memoranda of Understanding. 

File 93-91-3: Proposed Resolution Ratifying the Wage Freeze Memorandum of 
Understanding between the Service Employees International Union (SERJ) Locals 
250, 535 and 790 and the City and County of San Francisco. 

This proposed MOU, between the SEIU Locals 250, 535, and 790 and the City 
and County of San Francisco, which would be in addition to the current MOU in 
effect with the SEIU, would provide: 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 
August 30, 1991 

• That the City place a Charter Amendment on the November, 1991 ballot 
to provide for collective bargaining to begin in FY 1992-93, and to further 
provide that any employee retiring between July 1, 1991 and July 1, 1992 
will have calculation of retirement benefits only based on the rates set 
forth in the FY 1991-92 Salary Standardization Ordinance as approved by 
the Civil Service Commission and the Board of Supervisors and vetoed by 
the Mayor. 

• That the Salary Standardization Ordinance, pursuant to Charter 
Sections 8.401 and 8.407, be approved for FY 1992-93. 

• For the extension of the existing Pay Equity Agreement contained in the 
current MOU between the City and the SEIU Joint Council for two years 
(FYs 1992-93 and 1993-94). 

• For family dental coverage equivalent to that extended to nurses and 
school employees represented by SEIU, effective April 1, 1992. 

• For placement of a Charter Amendment on the November, 1991 ballot 
pertaining to early retirement. 

• A phasing in of binding arbitration for employee discipline and 
discharge. This provision would initially include a pilot program within 
the Department of Public Health, whereby a Labor-Management 
Committee would be appointed to review selected disciplinary matters 
for possible reference and opinion by an Arbitrator. 

This proposed MOU would expire on March 31, 1992. 

File 93-91-4 : Proposed Resolution Ratifying the Memorandum of Understanding 
between the Glaziers, Architectural Metal and Glass Workers Local Union No. 
718 and the City and County of San Francisco. 

The Glaziers, Architectural Metal and Glass Workers Union Local 718 
has not yet entered into a wage freeze MOU, but is expected to enter into one 
similar to that of the other crafts and trade unions. This MOU is the same as the 
previous MOU between the City and Local 718 and would be extended through 
June 30, 1996. 



File 93-91-5: Proposed Resolution Ratifying the Wage Freeze Memorandum of 
Understanding (MOU) between the Stationary Engineers, Local 39 and the City 
and County of San Francisco. 

This proposed MOU with the Stationary Engineers, Local 39, which is in 
addition to an existing Letter of Understanding, contains the following new 
provisions:

such premium pay is $102,816, annually, assuming all of the positions 
are filled and are paid the premium pay. 

This Local 39 MOU and any compensation or benefits provided by it would expire 
on June 30, 1995. The existing Letter of Understanding (LOU), which is scheduled 
to expire on June 30, 1993, would be extended to June 30, 1995.

June 30, 1991 Memorandum of Understanding between the Plumbers, Local 38 
and the City and County of San Francisco through June 30, 1992. 

The Plumbers Local 38 has not agreed to the previously imposed freeze on 
the Salary Standardization provisions of Charter Section 8.401 and 8.407. As such, 
the proposed MOU extension provides that this agreement is separate from and 
has no effect on the City's authority to determine wages pursuant to the Charter 
and the Salary Standardization Ordinance. 

This proposed MOU between the City and County of San Francisco and the 
Plumbers Local 38 simply extends the same provisions included in the expiring 
MOU for the period July 1, 1991 through June 30, 1992.

Cost of Dental Benefits 

1. The MOUs with the following unions include provisions for dental 
benefits equivalent to those benefits extended to nurses and San Francisco Unified 
School District employees. Based on an estimate of $59 per employee per month, or 
$708 per employee per year, currently paid for school district employees, the 
Budget Analyst has estimated the costs for dental benefits included in the MOUs. 
The following table lists the MOUs with provisions for dental benefits and the 
estimated cost for FY 1991-92 (three months from April 1, 1992 through June 30, 
1992) and the estimated total annual cost:

The various Memoranda of Understanding specify that the City shall 
approve the Salary Standardization Ordinance for FY 1992-93 as it would apply 
under Charter Sections 8.401 and 8.407. Given that the estimated cost of Salary 
Standardization for Miscellaneous employees for FY L991-92 would have been 
$57.1 million, including $41.7 million in General Fund costs, if the tost of Salary 
Standardization in FY 1992-93 is comparable to FY L991 92, then the total cost of 
Salary Standardization in FY 1992-93 for Miscellaneous employees would be 
approximately $114.2 million, including $83.4 million in General Fund costs. By

Collective Bargaining Charter Amendment is approved by the voters, Collective 
Bargaining shall be implemented for FY 1992-93. Consequently, City 
Miscellaneous employees would receive a Salary Standardization adjustment 
reflecting increases for FY 1991-92 and FY 1992-93, plus any increases (or 
decreases) resulting from Collective Bargaining. 

It should be noted that the Budget Analyst previously reported on the 
proposed Collective Bargaining Charter Amendment that the total estimated 
fiscal year 1991-92 cost to the City of salaries and fringe benefits for Miscellaneous 
employees exceeds $860 million per year, or approximately 36 percent of the total 
City budget of $2.4 billion. Because Miscellaneous salaries and fringe benefits 
account for such a large portion of the City's budget, the Controller had reported 
that any proposed Charter Amendment affecting wages, hours, and fringe 
benefits would have a significant financial impact on the City and County of San 
Francisco. The Controller had further reported that the extent of the financial 
impact would depend on the outcome of collective bargaining negotiations, which 
would be authorized by the Charter Amendment. 

Increased Cost of Employee Retirement Benefits in FY 1991-92 

The MOUs specify that for those employees who choose to retire in FY 1991- 
92, the City must calculate retirement benefits based on the FY 1991-92 Salary 
Standardization Ordinance approved by the Civil Service Commission and the 
Board of Supervisors and vetoed by the Mayor. According to Mr. Kieran Murphy of 
the Retirement System, approximately 450 City employees normally retire each 
fiscal year. According to Mr. Murphy, it is difficult to accurately estimate the 
number of employees who would elect to retire during FY 1991-92 and FY 1992-93 
despite the frozen wages. However, assuming one half of those intending to retire 
would do so and that the other half would stay on the job until the end of fiscal 
year 1992-93 in order to receive the full effect of the FY 1992-93 wage increases, Mr. 
Murphy estimates that the difference between future retirement payouts based on 
1991-92 Salary Standardization wages versus frozen wages would be 
approximately $3.5 million in 1991-92. Mr. Murphy further notes that a large 
proportion of employees who would normally retire in the next two years may 
instead remain on the job until June 30, 1993. The Retirement System has 
budgeted sufficient funds to pay for the estimated $3.5 million in retirement 
benefits. 

Savings and Costs of Early Retirement Charter Amendment 

The Charter Amendment providing for early retirement incentives and the 
offsetting abolishment of at least 500 positions to be vacated has already been 
approved by the Board of Supervisors. The following report on costs and net 

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS 
BUDGET ANALYST 

-10- 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 
August 30, 1991 

estimated savings from this Charter Amendment has been previously provided to 
the Board of Supervisors in oral form by the Budget Analyst. 

The Employees Retirement System estimates that approximately 1,500 
employees are expected to take the early retirement offer which would add three 
years of age and three years of service when calculating the service retirement 
benefits of all Miscellaneous Plan members. The total estimated cost of early 
retirement over a 20-year period for the City would be approximately $70 million. 
This $70 million represents the present value of the extra dollars which the City 
would be required to pay into the Retirement System over the next 20 years to 
reimburse the System for the cost of the Early Retirement Program. According to 
Mr. Murphy, the first payment would be about $4.5 million beginning in FY 1992- 
93 with future payments increasing with salaries. 

However, the proposed Charter Amendment also requires that at least 500 
or 50 percent of the vacated, non-mandated positions be abolished as part of the 
early retirement program. The Budget Analyst previously reported that if 500 
positions are abolished, the City would save an estimated $25 million annually. 
Given an estimated cost of early retirement of $4.5 million in the first year (1992- 
93), the net savings from early retirement during the first year is approximately 
$20.5 million. If as many as 750 positions (50 percent of 1,500 positions) are 
abolished, the City would save a total of $37.5 million. Using the first year 
estimated cost of $4.5 million, the estimated net savings in the first year would be 
$33 million, if 750 positions were abolished. On the recommendation of the Mayor, 
the Board of Supervisors, by a two-thirds vote, could restore some of these non- 
mandated positions which would then correspondingly reduce the net savings. 

If 500 positions are abolished and the City saves the corresponding $25 
million per year, the City would fully offset the estimated $70 million cost of early 
retirement within 2.8 years. Thereafter, the City would save $25 million annually. 
If 750 positions are abolished and the City saves the corresponding $37.5 million 
per year, the City would fully offset the estimated $70 million cost of early 
retirements within 1.87 years. Thereafter, the City would save $37.5 million 
annually. 

Cost of Two Additio nal Paid Training or Furlough Davs Off 

The MOUs with the following unions include provisions for two additional 
paid days off for union members. These two additional paid days off are listed in 
the separate MOUs as two paid training days off or two paid furlough days off. 
The calculations are based on average daily salaries for each classification within 
the unions. The following table lists these unions, the number of employees and 
the cost to the City, in terms of lost work time, to provide two additional paid 
training or furlough days off:

** These cost estimates are based on FY 1991-92 salary levels. The actual amounts for FY

1992-93 and Collective Bargaining in FY 1992-93, 1993-94, and 1994-95. 

To the extent that the City may need to backfill positions, the City would 
incur additional costs of overtime or temporary pay. 

Cost of Pav Equity 

As noted above, the MOU with SEIU Locals 250, 535, and 790 provides for an 
extension of Pay Equity benefits through FY 1992-93 and 1993-94. The current Pay 
Equity Agreement ends in FY 1991-92. According to Mr. Larry Garcia of the Civil 
Service Commission, assuming an increase of five percent per year for salary 
standardization, the total two-year cost of providing Pay Equity to the SEIU's 
approximately 7,500 eligible members would be approximately $14.5 million, 
based on FY 1991-92 standardized rates. 

Future Ra tification of MOUs 

As noted above, the Glaziers, Architectural Metal and Glass Workers 
Union, Local 718 is expected to accept a similar Wage Freeze MOU. According to 
Mr. Clifford Gates of the Mayor's Employee Relations Division, the Employee 
Relations Division expects a total of 14 other employee unions to accept a wage 
freeze MOU with the City. Mr. Gates further advises that another 15 unions have 
either chosen not to accept a wage freeze MOU with the City, or have not informed 
the City of their position. With respect to those employee unions that choose to

accept a wage freeze MOU, those unions will receive additional terms and

In addition, these MOUs that have not yet been submitted to the Board of

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee

Other MOU Provisions with Potential Fiscal Impact 

By agreeing to adopt the 1992-93 Salary Standardization Ordinance in 
advance, the Board of Supervisors agrees to incur the full amount of this 
estimated expense in 1992-93 regardless of the City's ability to pay. If the cost of 
Salary Standardization in FY 1992-93 is comparable to FY 1991-92, then the total 
cost of Salary Standardization in FY 1992-93 for Miscellaneous employees would 
be approximately $114.2 million, including $83.4 million in General Fund costs. 

As previously noted, the total two-year cost of providing Pay Equity to the 
SEIU's approximately 7,500 eligible members would be approximately $14.5 
million, based on FY 1991-92 standardized rates. Also, additional MOUs are still 
in the process of negotiation. The costs of such MOUs and accompanying 
sideletters of agreement will increase the costs to the City identified in this report. 

Because the Board of Supervisors has already approved submission to the 
voters of an early retirement incentive Charter Amendment, as required in these 
proposed MOU, the substantial savings that will result from the reduction in 
vacated positions is already assured of being realized should the voters approve 
the proposed Charter Amendment. Since the elimination of a portion of the 
positions that will be vacated because of the early retirement incentives is not a 
feature of the proposed memoranda, we do not view such savings as an offset to 
the costs identified in this report or to the additional costs that cannot be estimated 
at this time. 

Recommendation 

Approval of the proposed resolutions ratifying the MOUs between the SEIU 
(Locals 250, 535, and 790), Glaziers and Architectural Metal and Glass Workers 
(Local 718), Stationary Engineers (Local 39), Automotive Machinists (Local 1305), 
Laborers (Local 261), Automotive Service Workers (Local 250-A), Transit 
Supervisors (Local 200), Plumbers (Local 38), and Operating Engineers (Local 3), 
and the City and County of San Francisco is a policy matter for the Board of 

Supervisors.

Department: Board of Supervisors 

Item: Resolution accepting a gift from Marguerite Warren of two 

appropriate wooden benches to be placed adjacent to Room

Amount: Less than $5,000 

Source of Gift: Marguerite Warren 

Description: Ms. Marguerite Warren, who shared her historical 

knowledge with the Board of Supervisors at Finance 
Committee meetings for many years, directed her Executor 
in her will to purchase two wooden benches to be donated to 
the Board of Supervisors of San Francisco. These benches 
would be placed adjacent to Room 228, City Hall, where the 
Finance Committee meetings take place, for public use. 

The proposed resolution would request that the Chief 
Administrative Officer and the Clerk of the Board of 
Supervisors work with Marguerite Warren's Executor to see 
that her wishes are carried out ami that the benches have 

suitable plaques indicating that they are in memory of 
Marguerite Warren 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 
September 10, 1991 



Comments: 1. Mr. John Taylor of the Board of Supervisors reports that 

the value of the benches is below the $5,000 limit where 
department heads may accept gifts without approval of the 
Board of Supervisors. However, Mr. Taylor advises that in 
appreciation of Ms. Warren's many contributions to the 
Finance Committee meetings, the Board would like to accept 
Marguerite Warren's gift personally. 

2. In addition, Mr. Taylor reports, the Board may wish to 
discuss the placement of the benches, since if the benches are 
placed directly outside of Room 228, groups may congregate 
there, creating noise which may disturb Committee 
meetings. 

3. According to Mr. Taylor, the Department of Public Works 
would perform maintenance on the benches along with the 
other furniture on the second floor of City Hall, at no 
additional cost to the City. 

Recommendation: Approve the proposed resolution.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

September 10, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 5 -File 97-91-38 

The proposed ordinance would amend the City's Administrative Code by 
adding Sections 16.83-1 through 16.83-4, relating to City employee Workers 
Compensation costs. 

Description 

According to a report prepared by the Chief Administrative Officer's (CAO) 
Risk Manager Office in January of 1991, 7,000 of the City's 25,000 employees file 
Workers Compensation claims annually, they lose over 150,000 work days due to 
job related injuries and illnesses and cost the City $24 million annually in benefit 
payments. Compared to State-wide averages for California local governments, 
San Francisco files more than double the average rate of workers compensation 
claims and City employees stayed off the job twice as long per injury. The CAO 
report suggests the lack of departmental and managerial accountability as a 
reason for the increase of Workers Compensation costs. 

The proposed ordinance would address the City's rising cost in Workers 
Compensation by establishing a permanent Workers Compensation Task Force 
and requiring departments and managers to be responsible for workers 
compensation costs. More specifically the proposed ordinance would require the 
following: 

• Department heads would identify and utilize limited or modified duty 
assignments wherever practical for workers with disabilities. 

• Department heads to identify the person(s) to have authority and 
responsibility for monitoring and managing Workers Compensation costs. 
These persons would assist in communications between the workers 
compensation claims division and the injured employee. 

• Operating managers to be responsible for monitoring and managing 
Workers Compensation costs and to receive training to learn the appropriate 
skills for this purpose. 

• Performance evaluations of individual managers to include a review of 
their management of Workers Compensation claims. 

• City-wide accounting and budgeting mechanisms would be established to 
allocate to each department its share of Workers Compensation costs. 

• Automated data on Workers Compensation claims would be made 
available by the Retirement System, the Controller's Office and all 
departments for analysis of Workers Compensation claims. 

• Department heads would submit quarterly reports to the CAO's Risk 
Manager and the proposed Workers Compensation Task Force on the status 
of the Department's Workers Compensation claims.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

September 10, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

• Establishment of a Workers Compensation Task Force consisting of the 
following eight members: 

1. The Risk Manager 

2. The Mayor's Budget Director 

3. The Board of Supervisor's Budget Analyst 

4. The General Manager of the Retirement System 

5. The Director of Employees Relations Division 

6. The General Manager of Civil Service 

7. Two department heads to be designated by the above task force members 

The proposed task force would act in an advisory capacity to all matters 
pertaining to Workers Compensation such as cost containment, making 
recommendations regarding consolidation of responsibilities to improve 
efficiency, and assisting the Retirement Board and department heads to 
establish and maintain an automated record system on all accidents 
involving employees. The Risk Manager, on behalf of the Task Force, would 
submit a semi-annual written report to the Mayor and the Board of 
Supervisors on the work performed and the progress made toward 
achievement of workers compensation cost containment. 

Comments 

1. According to Mr. Keith Grand, the City's Risk Manager, the proposed 
Task Force work could be incorporated into his existing duties and any materials 
and supplies he uses would also be incorporated within the CAO's budget. 
According to Mr. Grand, the costs of the other Task Force members' time and use 
of materials and supplies would most likely be absorbed within their separate 
departments. 

2. Currently, individual departments do not control the acceptance or 
rejection of Workers Compensation claims, but they are responsible for claims 
reporting and for requesting the necessary funds in their annual budget to pay 
these claims. The Employee's Retirement System (ERS) is currently responsible 
for processing the Worker's Compensation claims though their ability to process 
these claims is limited because they do not have direct contact with the injured 
employee. Departmental responsibility is also limited because departments can 
not control their Workers Compensation budget through the approval or rejection 
of claims. 

3. According to Mr. Grand, the CAO has implemented plans for reducing 
Workers Compensation costs. These include encouraging departments through 
examples, workshops, and written forms to comply with a State law requiring 
that every employer provide a written Injury and Illness Prevention Program, 
and the installation of a personal computer program in every department which 
facilitates processing Workers Compensation forms and provides accurate, 
current information on department year-to-date spending. However, Mr. Grand 
reports that Workers Compensation is not a high priority for most departments. 
The effectiveness of these programs has been minimal because they depend on the 
voluntary participation of the departments.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

September 10, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

4. Additional possible costs associated with the proposed ordinance would 
include the additional workload City managers would incur to monitor and 
manage Workers Compensation costs as well as the training the City would be 
required to provide managers. However, according to Mr. Bill Lee of the 
Department of Public health (DPH), the California Occupational Safety and Heath 
Act (Cal OSHA) already requires managers to monitor and manage Workers 
Compensation claims and Cal OSHA requires employers to provide these 
managers adequate training to perform these duties. According to the authors' 
office, the proposed ordinance is, in part, codifying existing State requirements. 

5. The Police Department, the Department of Public Works, the 
Department of Public Health and the Public Utilities Commission have submitted 
letters supporting the proposed ordinance. 

6. The potential fiscal impact of the proposed ordinance is difficult to 
quantify. However, the Budget Analyst believes that the City's Workers 
Compensation costs could significantly decrease if the measures outlined in the 
proposed ordinance are properly implemented. 

Recommendation 

The proposed ordinance is a policy decision for the Board of Supervisors.

Item 6 - File 222-91-2 

The proposed resolution would urge the Civil Service Commission to review 
its Disability Leave rules so that City employees do not receive more net income 
when on industrial disability leave than the normal net income when working as 
a City employee. 

Description 

Currently, City employees defined as public safety officers (Police Officers, 
Fire Fighters, District Attorney Investigators and Paramedics) under State law 
and under the City's Administrative Code receive full pay for up to one year when 
injured on the job. A Memorandum of Understanding also allows Transit 
Operators to receive full pay if a work injury results from equipment failure. The 
balance of the City employees receive partial salary payments through Temporary 
Disability payments. Through a Civil Service rule, employees may receive sick 
pay credit benefit, which permits the use of accumulated sick leave hours to 
augment Temporary Disability (Workers Compensation) payments. Temporary 
Disability pay is tax exempt. 

According to an audit conducted by the City's Controller's Office, employees 
receiving Temporary Disability payments and sick leave payments receive 
approximately 26 percent more annually than their normal annual income. The 
following assumptions and resulting table were used by the Controller's Office to 
determine this 26 percent increase in income: 

Assumptions: 1. Employee makes $35,000 per year 

2. Employee has sick leave balance of 1,040 hours 

3. Temporary Disability Rate is $336 per week 

4. Federal Tax rate is 21.5% and State Tax rate is 5%

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

September 10, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

As reflected above, the sample employee on disability leave would receive a 
net income of $29,037 annually which is $5,990 or 26 percent more than the $23,047 
the employee would receive normally. 

The proposed resolution would urge the Civil Service Commission to review 
its rule that permits some injured employees to receive more take home pay than 
they would had they not been injured. 

Comments 

1. Mr. Randy Margo of the Controller's Office advises that the 26 percent 
increase in net pay for employees with disabilities could be providing economic 
incentives for employees to remain on disability leave longer than they would if 
their total disability pay is the same or less than their normal income. According 
to a report written by the Chief Administrative Officer's Risk Manager, San 
Francisco employees average 34 days away from work for each disabling claim 
which is 100 percent higher than the State-wide average for local government 
employees. Mr. Margo suggests that this high average could, in part, be caused 
by the higher pay the employee is receiving while on disability. 

2. Mr. Al Walker of the Civil Service Commission reports that the Disability 
Leave rule that allows injured employees to use accumulated sick leave credits to 
augment Temporary Disability pay was instituted to allow injured employees to 
maintain their standard of living while out on disability. The extent of the overpay 
would depend on the number of sick leave hours injured City employees have 
accumulated. The example above assumes the employee has accumulated almost 
six months of sick leave. As such, the potential savings to the City if the Civil 
Service were to change its disability leave rule would depend on the number of 
injured employees with adequate accumulated sick leave hours to bring their total 
net income over their normal net income. The potential savings would be the 
reduced number of days City employees stay away from work. Reducing the 
number of days City employees stay away from work would translate into reduced 
Temporary Disability claims payments and increased productivity resulting from 
more City employees at work than away from work. Mr. Margo was unable to 
quantify the possible cost savings to the City from implementation of the proposed 
resolution. 

3. According to Mr. Walker, after reading the Controller's audit, the Civil 
Service Commission reviewed its Disability Leave rule. Mr. Walker advises that, 
assuming there are no major controversies or problems, the Civil Service 
Commission should complete its review and implement changes to the rule by 
January 1, 1992.

PUBUC ' ^.RARY 



SUBJECT: September 16, 1991 Special Administration and Oversight Committee 
Meeting ^ 



The following three items are proposed resolutions, which would ratify 
Memoranda of Understanding with employee unions. As in our report of August 
30, 1991, pertaining to the ratification of MOUs with various other employee 
unions, in order to isolate MOU provisions that result in a budgetary impact over 
current conditions, we have concentrated on cost provisions that represent 
changes from current Memoranda of Understanding. 

The Budget Analyst notes, however, that these MOUs contain provisions 
that have an existing cost impact to the City. The cost of such provisions would 
already be accounted for in existing City department budgets. 

Item 1 - File 93-91-14: Proposed resolution Ratifying a Memorandum of 
Understanding between the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO and 
Supervisory Employees Association MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 200 

This proposed MOU between the City and County of San Francisco and the 
Supervisory Employees Association MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 200 
simply extends the same provisions included in the expiring MOU, for the period 
July 1, 1991, through June 30, 1995. 

The proposed MOU does not include provisions for claims classifications, 
which the City and the Union have agreed to separate into a new employee group. 
A new MOU with the claims classifications is the subject of Item 2 - File 93-91-15, 
below. 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

September 16, 1991 SpecialAdministration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 2 ■ File 93-91-15: Proposed resolution Ratifying a Memorandum of 
Understanding between the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO and 
Supervisory Employees Association MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 200, 
for Claims Classifications 

This year, the City and the Supervisory Employees Association MUNI 
Transport Workers Union, Local 200 agreed to place those employee positions that 
are located in the Public Utilities Commission's Finance Bureau, Claims 
Division, into a separate employee group within Local 200. This proposed MOU 
between the City and County of San Francisco and the Supervisory Employees 
Association MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 200, for claims 
classifications, simply extends the same provisions included in the expiring 
MOU, for the period July 1, 1991, through June 30, 1995, as they pertain to claims 
classifications employed by the Public Utilities Commission in its Finance 
Bureau, Claims Division. 

Item 3 - File 93-91-16: Proposed resolution Ratifying a Memorandum of 
Understanding between the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO and 
Transport Workers Union, Local 250-A, for Units 8-AA, 8-BB, 8-FF, 11-Z, and 11- 
CC 

This year, the City and the Transport Workers Union, Local 250-A agreed to 
place those employee positions not located in the Public Utilities Commission, or 
the Municipal Railway, into separate employee units within Local 250-A. These 
newly created employee units represent various classifications of Disease Control 
Investigators, Environmental Health Inspectors, Zoologists, Museum 
Conservators, and Curators. 

This proposed MOU between the City and County of San Francisco and the 
Supervisory Employees Association MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 250- 
A, for Units 8-AA, 8-BB, 8-FF, 11-Z, and 11-CC, simply extends the same 
provisions included in the expiring MOU, for the period July 1, 1991, through 
June 30, 1995, as they pertain to classifications of Disease Control Investigators, 
Environmental Health Inspectors, Zoologists, Museum Conservators, and 
Curators. 

The Employee Relations Division reports that one provision of this proposed 
MOU has been changed, which would have a financial impact on the City. The 
proposed MOU would reduce Standby Pay from the previous rate of 25 percent of 
the base rate of pay to 10 percent of the base rate of pay for eligible classifications. 
Mr. Clifford Gates of the Employee Relations Division states that, in the past, 
employees would receive the 25 percent premium for remaining on-call at the 
worksite for immediate emergency service in performing their regular duties. 
Under the new provision, employees would receive a 10 percent premium, instead 
of the old 25 percent premium, when the Department provides an electronic 
paging device (beeper), and the employee is not required to remain at the worksite. 

According to Mr. Mark Goldstein of the Department of Public Health, only 
one position within the 6122 Senior Environmental Health Inspector classification 

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS 
BUDGET ANALYST 

-2- 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

September 16, 1991 SpecialAdministration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

has used the Standby Pay provision in the past, at a cost of approximately $13,320, 
annually (1,846 hours multiplied by an hourly rate of $28.8625, at the top step, 
multiplied by the old premium of 25 percent). None of the other classifications 
under this MOU have used Standby Pay in the past. Under the new "beeper" 
premium of 10 percent of the base rate of pay, the cost of the premium would be 
approximately $5,328, which is $7,992 less than the cost of the old premium of 25 
percent. The actual cost of the new premium pay and the related savings from the 
old premium pay, however, would depend on the number of classifications that 
would receive the premium, and the actual number of hours worked to which the 
premium is applied. 

Recommendation 

Because the MOUs with the Supervisory Employees Association MUNI 
Transport Workers Union, Local 200, and the Supervisory Employees Association 
MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 200, claims classifications, are 
essentially the same as the old expired MOUs, and the costs of these MOUs are 
already provided for in City department budgets, approve the proposed resolutions 
(Files 93-91-14 and 93-91-15). 

Because the proposed MOU with the Transport Workers Union of America, 
AFL-CIO and Transport Workers Union, Local 250- A, for Units 8-AA, 8-BB, 8-FF, 
11-Z, and 11-CC provides for a reduction in the existing Standby Pay rate, approve 
the proposed resolution (File 93-91-16).

Item 11 - File 123-91-1 

1. Ordinance amending Article 15 of the San Francisco Municipal Code 
(Public Works Code) by amending Section 706 thereof, requiring abutting owners to 
maintain safe conditions and establishing liability in tort for failing to maintain a 
safe condition. 

2. Section 706 of the San Francisco Municipal Code (Public Works Code) 
currently requires that the owners of lots immediately adjacent to any portion of a 
public street, avenue, alley, lane, court or place maintain the sidewalks, fronting or 
adjacent to their property in good repair and condition. The proposed ordinance 
would also provide that "any person who suffers injury or property damage as a legal 
result of the failure of the owner to maintain the sidewalks and sidewalk areas shall 
have a cause of action for any injuries or property damage against the property 
owner for any damages the owner may be required to pay any judgement or 
settlement of any claim that results." 

3. Ms. Kimberly Reiley of the City Attorney's Office reports that under the 
current guidelines of the San Francisco Municipal Code, property owners cannot be 
held liable for any injuries or property damages sustained on any portion of a lot 
immediately adjacent to a public street, avenue, alley, lane, court or sidewalk, and 
therefore the City could be hold liable. Approval of the proposed ordinance would 
result in the property owners and not the City being held liable. Mr. Michael Haase 
of the Department of Public Works (DPW) Claims Division reports that currently 
DFW Street Inspectors respond to complaints and do routine sidewalk surveys. 11 
defective sidewalks are found, the fronting property Owner is issued a notice to repair 
the sidewalk. Mr. Haase states that the proposed ordinance would not change the 
Way the DPW currently maintains sidewalks. The proposed ordinance would only 
hold property owners as liable for any claims by a third party as a result of injuries or 

property damages sustained

5. As reflected above, the City has incurred direct expenses of $1,639,504 over 
the past seven years for settling claims against the City for such injuries or property 
damage. These costs do not include the Department of Public Works and City 
Attorney staff time to investigate and negotiate these settlements with the individual 
claimants. 

6. Mr. Haase indicates that although the number of cases which could occur 
in the future against the City cannot be determined, it is likely that the proposed 
ordinance would provide a significant cost savings to the City. Over the past seven 
years, the proposed ordinance would have resulted in an annual average savings of 
$234,215 to the City. 

Recommendation 

Approve of the proposed ordinance.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

October 8, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Items 13. 14. 15. and 16 - Files 93-91-12. 93-91-14. 93-91-15. and 93-91-16 

Note: In order to isolate Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) provisions that 
result in a budgetary impact over current conditions, we have concentrated 
on cost provisions that represent changes from the current Memoranda of 
Understanding. Provisions that have an existing cost impact to the City 
would be accounted for in existing City departmental budgets. 
Furthermore, although these four MOUs specify a beginning date of July 1, 
1991, the MOUs would become effective upon ratification by the Board of 
Supervisors. Existing provisions would remain in effect until these new 
MOUs are ratified by the Board of Supervisors. 

Item 13 (File 93-91-12) is a proposed resolution Ratifying a Memorandum of 
Understanding between the Building Material and Construction Teamsters Local 
216 and the City and County of San Francisco. 

This proposed MOU with the Building Material and Construction 
Teamsters Local 216 simply extends the same provisions included in the expiring 
MOU, for the period July 1, 1991, through June 30, 1993, with the following 
exceptions: 

1) MOU provisions on overtime have been changed to adhere to 
standards mandated by the Fair Labor Standards Act. 

2) The new MOU provides for a pilot "4/10" program in the Department 
of Public Works, Bureau of Street Cleaning, whereby employees may 
work a four-day, ten-hour workday, work-week. The Program would 
be evaluated by the City and the Union for a period to be determined 
through meet and conferral. 

3) The new MOU provides for a procedure to resolve disputes regarding 
the assignment of truck driving work. Disputes would be resolved 
through a meeting between the union and the Department and 
chaired by a representative of the Civil Service Commission. Any 
unresolved disputes would be referred to a Board of Adjustments, 
consisting of two representatives, each, from the union and the City. 
If the Board of Adjustments cannot resolve a dispute over the 
assignment of truck driving work, the dispute would be settled 
through binding arbitration. 

Comments 

1. According to Mr. Clifford Gates of the Employee Relations Division of the 
Mayor's Office, the new MOU provisions regarding overtime pay would result in 
reduced overtime costs to the City. In the past, truck drivers received overtime pay 
for working on Saturdays and Sundays, whether or not the employees worked full 
40-hour work weeks for the City. Since the new MOU conforms to the overtime 
provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, truck drivers covered by this MOU 
would not receive, in all instances, overtime pay lor working on Saturdays and

Sundays. The Budget Analyst notes that the new overtime provisions may 
decrease overtime expenditures. 

2. Mr. Gates states that the new dispute resolution procedures would save 
the City time and money, because the arbitration process avoids possible court 
litigation. Under the old MOU, the Civil Service Commission determined the 
assignment of truck driving work through job classification and re-classification. 
If the union disagreed with the Civil Service Commission's determination, the 
union could seek remedy through a civil law suit. The new MOU provides for a 
dispute resolution process that ultimately ends in binding arbitration. Mr. Gates 
further states that the City would incur a cost of any arbitration proceedings. 
However, these arbitration costs would probably be less than the cost of a civil law 
suit, according to Mr. Gates. While the proposed new dispute resolution may 
prove less costly, the Budget Analyst notes that such a procedure is a new policy. 
Therefore, this proposed MOU is a policy matter for the Board of Supervisors. 

Item 14 (File 93-91-14) is a proposed resolution Ratifying a Memorandum of 
Understanding between the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO and 
Supervisory Employees Association MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 200, 
and the City and County of San Francisco. 

This proposed MOU between the City and County of San Francisco and the 
Supervisory Employees Association MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 200 
simply extends the same provisions included in the expiring MOU, for the period 
July 1, 1991, through June 30, 1995. 

The proposed MOU does not include provisions for claims classifications, 
which the City and the Union have agreed to separate into a new employee group. 
A new MOU with the claims classifications is the subject of Item 15 (File 93-91-15), 
below. 

Item 15 (File 93-91-15) is a proposed resolution Ratifying a Memorandum of 
Understanding between the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO and 
Supervisory Employees Association MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 200, 
for Claims Classifications, and the City and County of San Francisco. 

This year, the City and the Supervisory Employees Association MUNI 
Transport Workers Union, Local 200 agreed to place those employee positions that 
are located in the Public Utilities Commission's Finance Bureau, Claims 
Division, into a separate employee group within Local 200. This proposed MOU 
between the City and County of San Francisco and the Supervisory Employees 
Association MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 200, for claims 
classifications, simply extends the same provisions included in the expiring 
MOU, for the period July 1, 1991, through June 30, 1995, as they pertain to claims 
classifications employed by the Public Utilities Commission in its Finance 
Bureau, Claims Division.

Item 16 (File 93-91-16) is a proposed resolution Ratifying a Memorandum of 
Understanding between the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO and 
Transport Workers Union, Local 250-A, for Units 8-AA, 8-BB, 8-FF, 11-Z, and 11- 
CC, and the City and County of San Francisco. 

This year, the City and the Transport Workers Union, Local 250-A agreed to 
place those employee positions not located in the Public Utilities Commission, or 
the Municipal Railway, into separate employee units within Local 250-A. These 
newly created employee units represent various classifications of Disease Control 
Investigators, Environmental Health Inspectors, Zoologists, Museum 
Conservators, and Curators. 

This proposed MOU between the City and County of San Francisco and the 
Supervisory Employees Association MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 250- 
A, for Units 8-AA, 8-BB, 8-FF, 11-Z, and 11-CC, simply extends the same 
provisions included in the expiring MOU, for the period July 1, 1991, through 
June 30, 1995, as they pertain to classifications of Disease Control Investigators, 
Environmental Health Inspectors, Zoologists, Museum Conservators, and 
Curators. 

Comments 

The Employee Relations Division reports that one provision of this proposed 
MOU has been changed, which would have a financial impact on the City. The 
proposed MOU would reduce Standby Pay from the previous rate of 25 percent of 
the base rate of pay to 10 percent of the base rate of pay for eligible classifications. 
Mr. Gates states that, in the past, employees would receive the 25 percent 
premium for remaining on-call at home when emergency circumstances 
warrant an immediate response to the worksite. Under the new provision, 
employees would receive a 10 percent premium, instead of the old 25 percent 
premium, when the Department provides an electronic paging device (beeper), 
which would allow the employee to remain on standby under less restrictive 
circumstances. 

According to Mr. Mark Goldstein of the Department of Public Health, only 
one position within the 6122 Senior Environmental Health Inspector classification 
has used the Standby Pay provision in the past, at a cost of approximately $13,320, 
annually (1,846 hours multiplied by an hourly rate of $28.8625, at the top step, 
multiplied by the old premium of 25 percent). None of the other classifications 
under this MOU have used Standby Pay in the past. Under the new "beeper" 
premium of 10 percent of the base rate of pay, the cost of the premium would be 
approximately $5,328, which is $7,992 less than the cost of the old premium of 25 
percent. The actual cost of the new premium pay and the related savings from the 
old premium pay, however, would depend on the number of classifications that 
would receive the premium, and the actual number of hours worked to which the 
premium is applied.

Itecom m endations 

The proposed resolution (File 93-91-12) ratifying the MOU, including 
changes, with the Building Material and Construction Teamsters Local 216, is a 
policy matter for the Board of Supervisors. 

Because the MOUs with the Supervisory Employees Association MUNI 
Transport Workers Union, Local 200, and the Supervisory Employees Association 
MUNI Transport Workers Union, Local 200, claims classifications, are 
essentially the same as the old expired MOUs, and the costs of these MOUs are 
already provided for in City department budgets, approve the proposed resolutions 
(Files 93-91-14 and 93-91-15). 

Because the proposed MOU, including changes, with the Transport 
Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO and Transport Workers Union, Local 250- 
A, for Units 8-AA, 8-BB, 8-FF, 11-Z, and 11-CC results in no increased cost to the 
City, approve the proposed resolution (File 93-91-16).

Item 17 -File 39-91-1 

1. This item is a hearing to consider transmitting the 1990-91 Civil Grand Jury 
Reports of the City and County of San Francisco. 

2. The 1990-91 Civil Grand Jury's recommendations from the Final Reports 
concerning Budget, Emergency Preparedness, City Land Use, Youth and Children, 
the Office of Citizens Complaints, Homeless Shelters, the Human Rights 
Commission, Jails, and the Grand Jury Process are as follows: 

Budget 

a. Job classifications and the Salary Standardization Ordinance should be 
reevaluated. The study should assess reasons why San Francisco job 
classes have salaries higher than similar jobs at other government levels. 

b. Measures should be taken to change the Charter-mandated use of private- 
sector salaries to determine City salaries. 

c. A representative of the Controller should be present at the Civil Service 
Commission review of salary adjustments, and a report on salary 
adjustment decisions should accompany recommendations to the Board of 
Supervisors. 

d. Two or more performance audits should be conducted each year by the 
Internal Audits Division of the Controller's Office. 

e. The Grand Jury reports that performance is not considered in the current 
process of promotions and raises for City employees. Rather, seniority is the 
sole criterion. Therefore, the Grand Jury recommends that productivity 
standards be structured and enforced in every department. 

f. The Grand Jury reports that the salary range for any given position is 20 
percent (i.e., Step V is 20 percent more than Step I). The Grand Jury 
further reports that this restriction does not allow for incentive wage 
increases. Therefore, the Grand Jury recommends that the 20 percent 
salary range be more flexible. 

g. The Grand Jury reports that City employees are promoted to management 
positions because of seniority, often without management skills or training. 
Therefore, the Grand Jury recommends that managers be better trained. 

h. A City-wide system for tracking positions, personnel, and job vacancies 
(that is, a Position Control System) should be established. 

i. The Charter should he revised so departments that rai8e COStS arc 
responsihle for finding money to cover those new costs.

additional hours or outside of their classifications during an emergency. 

c. Self-sufficiency training should be more readily available to residents of San 
Francisco. 

d. Coordination and assignment of volunteers needs improvement. 

e. Equipment of City departments should be made available to the Fire 
Department during an emergency. An inter-agency equipment network

including priorities, procedures for acquisition, sale, leasing, development, 
clear delineation of administration and oversight responsibilities. 

b. Departments should use City Planning for planning and tactical support in 
land use projects. Property management and development should not be 
conducted independently in every department. 

c. An inventory of City-owned land, including a listing of leased properties, 
should be accessible and organized by use (vacant lot, park, etc.) 

Youth and Children 

a. Procedures within the Juvenile Probation Department should be clearly 
defined and stated. 

b. Youthful offenders should be held at the Youth Guidance Center rather 
than placed in group homes because of overcrowding, so that they may be 
held accountable for their actions. 

c. Secure facilities should be raised to a reasonable, humane standard. 

d. According to their mandate, the Juvenile Justice Commission should 
investigate and report on the condition of group homes in San Francisco. 

e. The Juvenile Probation Department and the Department of Social Services

inter-departmental communication, to increase understanding of staff 
responsibilities, and to share information. 

g. Top agency staff, probation officers, and private agencies providing shelter 
to youth awaiting placement should discuss mutual concerns. 

Office of Citizens Complaints (OCC)

b. Correspondence should be in plain English. Complainants should be 
routinely informed of the status of their complaints. 

c. The OCC, not the Police Department, should prosecute citizen complaint 
cases. 

d. The OCC should initiate a program to improve community awareness of 
the complaint and review process. 

e. A system of arbitration should be implemented so less serious complaints 
can be mediated without time-consuming investigation and prosecution. 

f. Unused, budgeted funds should be used to hire and train more 
investigators. 

g. Statistics on officers appearing repeatedly in citizen complaints should be 
compiled and distributed to the Police Department upper management and 
Police Commission. 

Homeless Shelters 

a. The Mayor's Office should monitor the progress of the Multi-Service 
Centers more closely. There should be deadlines for completion of 
renovations. Renovations should be given highest priority without 
sacrificing essential programs. 

b. More showers should be installed in each Multi-Service Center. 

c. More staff should be hired. Guests should help with responsibilities at the 
shelters. 

Human Rights Commission (HRC)

cases to other agencies when appropriate. Administrative support 
functions should be shared with related commissions. 

e. Cases should be monitored for importance and merit. 

f. Forms should be simplified and reduced to a minimum. 

g. The contract review committee should include one member from private 
industry or a non-public organization. 

h. Highly paid staff should be reduced. Clerical staff should perform many 
computer functions currently performed by highly paid staff. 

Jails 

a. The San Francisco Jail Management Plan will require the continued 
commitment and cooperation of each of the involved agencies. 

b. Future Civil Grand Juries should monitor the progress of the Plan. 

c . The proposed Jail Population Manager must be given the full cooperation of 
all agencies represented by the Criminal Justice Administrators Group. 
The Jail Population Manager should be independent of the Sheriffs 
Department. 

d. The Jail Population Manager should create mechanisms to alert the Sheriff 
and the Criminal Justice Administrator's Group if the Plan's projected bed 
savings assumptions are not being met. 

Grand Jury Process 

a. The Grand Jury should be granted a budget to cover expenses incurred by 
committees. A treasurer should be named whether or not a budget is 
granted. 

b. An orientation program, including an overview, training in investigative 
techniques, information regarding City resources, a one-hour Charter 
survey, and meetings with various City officials, should be implemented. 
When an alternate replaces a resigned juror, a special orientation should 
be scheduled.

Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

October 8, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 18 - File 98-91-3 

1. The proposed motion is for purposes of exercising the first option set 
forth in the previously approved agreement to provide Budget Analyst services 
between the Board of Supervisors and the Joint Venture consisting of Stanton W. 
Jones and Associates/Debra A. Newman/Rodriguez, Perez, Delgado & Company 
Certified Public Accountants/Harvey M. Rose Accountancy Corporation Certified 
Public Accountants/Wallace, Mah & Louie Certified Public Accountants. The 
proposed option would extend the term of the agreement from January 1, 1992 to 
December 31, 1993. 

2. The Budget Analyst has determined that the proposed motion to extend 
the terms of this agreement through December 31, 1993 would have a fiscal 
impact. The budget approved by the Board of Supervisors for Fiscal Year 1991-92 
for the Joint Venture to provide Budget Analyst services to the Board is $1,153,290. 
This is the same amount as the budget for Fiscal Year 1990-91. There is no 
budgetary increase for Fiscal Year 1991-92 because, in accordance with the 
provisions of the Board's agreement with the Joint Venture, any increase must be 
based on the average percentage increase granted to 'Miscellaneous' employees 
under the City's Salary Standardization Ordinance approved by the Board of 
Supervisors. Since all Salary Standardization increases were frozen for 
Miscellaneous employees for Fiscal Year 1991-92, no increase was provided to the 
Joint Venture. 

3. To continue full implementation of the Board's Minority Business 
Enterprise (MBE), Women Business Enterprise (WBE) ordinance, the Budget 
Analyst services are provided under a Joint Venture Agreement between the 
Board of Supervisors and Stanton W. Jones and Associates (MBEVDebra A. 
Newman (WBEVRodriguez, Perez, Delgado & Company Certified Public 
Accountants (MBE)/Harvey M. Rose Accountancy Corporation Certified Public 
Accountants/Wallace, Mah & Louie Certified Public Accountants (MBE). These 
MBE and WBE firms are registered with the Human Rights Commission. In 
accordance with the Board of Supervisors previously approved MBE/WBE 
Department Action Plan, 40 percent of all funding to provide Budget Analyst 
services is allocated to the above-named MBE/WBE firms.

John L. Taylor 
Clerk of the Board 



Re: Contracting for Budget Analyst Services 

Dear Mr. Taylor: 

The cost information and supplementary data provided by your office on the 
proposed contract for Budget Analyst Services have been reviewed by my staff. 

If the services are performed by the contractor at the proposed contract 
price, it would appear that the services can practically be performed at a 
lower cost than if the work were performed by City employees at presently 
budgeted levels. A statement of projected costs and estimated savings for the 
year commencing July 1, 1991 is attached for your review. 

The requirements of Charter Section 8.300-1 relative to the Controller's 
finding that work can practically be performed by contract for the year 
1991-92 have been satisfied. To complete the requirements of the Charter, it 
will be necessary for your department to secure approval by resolution of the 
Board of Supervisors before formal contract documents for an annual period can 
be certified by my office. 



Very truly yours.

Item 5 - File 30-91-20 

1. The proposed resolution would authorize approval of amendments to the 
San Francisco County Adult Day Health Plan. 

2. State statutes and regulations require counties to amend the County 
Adult Day Health Care Plan whenever service area boundaries need to be 
changed, as recommended and approved by the local Adult Day Health Planning 
Council. 

3. The Adult Day Health Planning Council is appointed by the County 
Board of Supervisors and approved by the State Department of Aging to plan for 
organized day programs of therapeutic, social and health activities and services 
provided to elderly persons or other persons with functional impairments either 
physical or mental, for the purpose of restoring or maintaining optimal capacity 
for self-care. Ms. Cynthia Selmar, Director of Senior Health Services at the 
Department of Public Health (DPH) reports that the Planning Council does not 
receive any cash allocations from the City, but rather, the City contributes only in- 
kind services through budgeted personnel who serve as representatives on the 
Planning Council. Members on the Planning Council include senior citizens, a 
representative from the Center for Independent Living and City representatives 
from the DPH, the Department of Social Services, the Public Utilities 
Commission, and the Commission on the Aging. 

4. The Adult Day Health Planning Council proposes to amend the Sail 
Francisco County Adult Day Health Care Plan to provide continuum 11 IV 
Services to ARC/AIDS clients. Ms. Selmar .indicates that this amendment would 
enable the Adult Day Health Plan to target a specialized population Ms Selmar 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

October 22, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

also indicates that the proposed amendment would be the only State-mandated 
continuum HIV service plan for senior citizens in the State. 

5. The current San Francisco County Adult Day Health Care Plan divides 
San Francisco into eight adult day health service areas. Attachment 1 contains 
the present service areas and Attachment II contains the proposed service areas. 
The following service areas are part of the current Adult Day Health Care Plan: 

Service Area Location 

1 Chinatown and North Beach 

2 Western Addition, Hayes Valley, and the Marina

6. The proposed resolution would amend the current Adult Day Health 
Care Plan by (1) eliminating Service Area 3 (Richmond District) and (2) by 
expanding the service areas currently covered under Service Area 2 (the Western 
Addition, Hayes Valley, the Marina) and Service Area 7 (Sunset and Park Merced 
Districts) to cover the proposed eliminated Service Area 3 (Richmond District). 
Ms. Selmar reports that under the current plan, the provider for Service Area 3 
(Richmond District) is Garden Sullivan Hospital. However, Ms. Selmar states 
that Garden Sullivan Hospital closed in 1983, and its closure was not announced 
until after the Plan was formulated. Ms. Selmar indicates that Adult Day Health 
Services for Service Area 3 have been informally provided services from Service 
Area 2 and Service Area 7 since 1983. The providers for Service Area 2 is the Mt. 
Zion/Ruth Ann Rosenberg Adult Day Health Center (San Francisco Institute on 
Aging), a non-profit organization. The provider for Service Area 7 is Laguna 
Honda Hospital Adult Day Health Center. Ms. Selmar indicates that because 
seniors living in Service Area 3 have been traveling to either Mt. Zion/Ruth Ann 
Rosenberg Adult Day Health Center (San Francisco Institute on Aging) or the 
Laguna Honda Hospital Adult Day Health Center since 1983, the proposed 
amendment would not affect the level of services offered at these facilities. Ms. 
Selmar notes that both of the proposed amendments would be absorbed within the 
provider's existing budgets. 

7. As noted above, the Adult Day Health Planning Council does not receive 
any cash funds from the City, but rather the City only contributes in-kind 
personnel services for the representatives which serve on the Council. In 
addition, Ms. Selmar indicates that the proposed amendments to the Health Plan 
would have no fiscal impact to the City. 

Recommendation 

Approve the proposed resolution.

October 22, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

Item 6 -File 106-91-5 

1. The proposed resolution would authorize the Civil Services Commission 
to expend budgeted funds in the amount of $89,500 to conduct the salary survey for 
salary standardization for fiscal year 1992-93. 

2. Salary Standardization Procedure 

The Civil Service salary standardization procedure with respect to 
Miscellaneous positions operates under the general guidelines of Section 8.401 of 
the City Charter. This Section provides that City and County Miscellaneous 
employees be paid "...in accord with the generally prevailing rates of wages for 
like service and working conditions in private employment or in other comparable 
governmental organizations in this state." Section 8.407 applies to all employees 
covered by Section 8.401 and provides a set procedure and a mathematical formula 
by which wages for those employees will be set. The procedure requires that data 
on wages paid for comparable employment be collected from five Bay Area 
counties (Marin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, and Contra Costa), from the 
ten most populous cities in those counties, from other public jurisdictions in the 
Bay Area (including the State and Federal governments), and from the private 
sector. Should Civil Service staff determine that insufficient data exist, out-of-Bay 
Area data may be acquired, provided that the jurisdiction surveyed employs 3,000 
or more persons. 

Section 8.407 provides the basis for the wage and salary survey conducted to 
establish wage rates for Miscellaneous City and County employees. The survey is 
based on "benchmark" classes which are considered to be key classes within 
occupational groupings. Survey data on wages and salaries are collected for 
positions judged comparable to the benchmark classes in other jurisdictions and 
in the private sector. If the prevailing wage, as determined by the survey, is above 
the wage paid by the City and County, a wage increase for the affected class is 
warranted; if the prevailing wage is below that paid by the City and County, no 
wage increase is warranted. In general, if the Civil Service Commission 
recommends a benchmark class for an increase, all classes tied to the benchmark 
class will be recommended for a corresponding increase; if the benchmark class 
is not recommended for an increase, none of the classes tied to that benchmark 
class will be recommended for a wage increase. 

Subsequent to releasing the preliminary salary survey, notices are 
distributed to employees and employee groups regarding the procedure for 
requesting adjustments to the recommendations. These internal adjustment 
requests are analyzed by the Civil Service Commission. Where appropriate, 
internal salary adjustments over those indicated by the survey are incorporated 
into the salary recommendations. The amended recommendations are made 
available at a public hearing after which they are suhmitted to the Hoard of 
Supervisors.

BUDCET ANALYST 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

October 22, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

The Commission updates the salary survey each year in an effort to comply 
with the Charter's provision (contained in Section 8.407) that salaries be set in 
accordance with the "prevailing rates" in other jurisdictions. The Charter does 
not require the survey update. For purposes of setting the salaries for San 
Francisco employees, however, the Civil Service Commission has defined 
"prevailing rate" as that rate effective July 1 of the corresponding fiscal year in 
other jurisdictions. With this definition, the preliminary survey must be updated 
after the July 1 salaries in other jurisdictions have been determined. In a letter of 
opinion dated February 16, 1977, the City Attorney concurred with the concept of 
using July 1 salaries as the "prevailing rate" for purposes of setting San 
Francisco salaries. 

3. Charter Section 8.401 governs in part the method of setting salaries for 
positions within the City and County service and provides the following: 

"Not later than January 15th, 1944 and every five years thereafter and 
more often if in the judgement of the Civil Service Commission or the 
Board of Supervisors economic conditions have changed to the extent 
that revision of existing schedules may be warranted in order to 
reflect current prevailing conditions, the Civil Service Commission 
shall prepare and submit to the Board of Supervisors a schedule of 
compensation as in this section provided." 

4. The following is a tabulation of general increases in salaries since the 
updated salary survey for fiscal year 1991-92 in the majority of the public 
jurisdictions from which the Civil Service Commission collect salary data under 
the provisions of the Charter: 

Public Jurisdictions 
Salary Increases Since March of 1991 

Marin County 6.0% 

Contra Costa County 0.0% 

Alameda County 4.5% 

Santa Clara County 3.0% 

San Mateo County 6.0% 

State of California 0.0% 

City of San Jose 5.0% 

City of Oakland 3.0%

BUDGET ANALYST 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

October 22, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has reported an approximate average 4.2 
percent annual increase in wages in private employment in the greater Bay Area 
during the past year through June of 1991. 

5. Mr. Pat Finney of the Civil Service Commission estimates that the above 
increases since March of 1991 would result in increases for the City's 
Miscellaneous employees of approximately 2.5 to three percent. Given the fact that 
City employee salaries were not increased by an average of 5.6 percent for FY 
1991-92, the total current salary increase would be approximately 8.1 to 8.6 
percent. It should be noted, however, that historically the results of the final 
salary survey, released in March of each year, indicate that the actual percentage 
increase is significantly more than the percentage estimate resulting from the 
preliminary survey. The Civil Service Commission found that a review of the 
tabulation of Bay Area salary increases and BLS certifications disclosed that 
increases in salaries in other jurisdiction are sufficiently significant to warrant a 
salary survey of public jurisdictions and private employment in order to make 
salary recommendations for fiscal year 1992-93. 

Comments 

1. This will be the ninth year in which the private sector portion of the 
salary survey will be provided by contract through the State Personnel Board with 
the Joint Powers Agency consisting of the City of Anaheim, Hayward Unified 
School District, County of Sacramento, Sacramento Utilities District, and the 
County of Sonoma. (Charter Sections 8.401 and 8.407 require the Commission to 
collect such data from "recognized governmental Bay Area salary and wage 
surveys of private employers...") Commission staff report that the cost of the 
contract with the Joint Powers Agency will be $84,000 including a salary survey 
update which may be done later in the fiscal year. The Commission's 1991-92 
budget for all Charter-required surveys, including uniformed members of the 
Police and Fire Departments, Registered Nurses and Transit Operators as well as 
Miscellaneous employees, totals $89,500. The remaining funds in the amount of 
$5,500 would be used to staff field work, mail questionnaires, telephone use 
including long distance, printed forms and salary survey books, additional 
printing costs associated with the salary standardization ordinances and follow- 
up contacts with surveyed agencies. 

2. In FY 1991-92, the City rejected the Salary Standardization Ordinance 
and imposed a wage freeze in order to eliminate a projected budgetary shortfall. 
In exchange for the wage freeze, the employee unions entered into Memoranda o( 
Understanding with the City, which required the placement of Proposition B on 
the November, 1991 ballot. Proposition B is a Charter amendment that will require 
the City to negotiate, through collective bargaining, wages, hours, benefits and 
working conditions for Miscellaneous employees. Collective bargaining would 
begin in FY 1992-93.

IHJIX;KT ANALYST 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

October 22, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

3. Furthermore, the various Memoranda of Understanding with the 
employee unions specify that the City shall approve the Salary Standardization 
Ordinance for FY 1992-93 as it would apply under Charter Sections 8.401 and 
8.407. The estimated cost of Salary Standardization for all employees for FY 1991- 
92 would have been $75.8 million, including $60.4 million in General Fund costs. 
If the cost of Salary Standardization in FY 1992-93 is comparable to FY 1991-92, 
then the total cost of Salary Standardization in FY 1992-93 for all employees would 
be approximately $151.6 million, including $120.8 million in General Fund costs.

SUBJECT: November 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee 
Meeting <^ 



Item 4 - File 106-91-6 

Department: Civil Service Commission 

Item: Resolution fixing highest generally prevailing wage rates, for 

private employment on public contracts. 

Description: The proposed resolution would determine that the highest 

general prevailing rate of wages paid for private employment on 
City contracts to various craft workers is as set forth in (a) the 
General Prevailing Wage Determination survey made by the 
Director of Industrial Relations of the State of California for all 
craft workers except Garage Attendants and (b) the agreement 
between Parking Employers and Teamster Automotive 
Employees, Local 665 for Garage Attendants. 

Charter Section 7.204 requires that contracts for public works or 
improvement involving construction or fabrication shall provide 
for the payment of the highest prevailing wage rates to all 
persons performing labor under such contracts. 

Section 6.37 of the City's Administrative Code gives authority to 
the Board of Supervisors to fix and determine the highest 
general prevailing wage rates. To assist tin- Board in the 
determination of these wage rates, the Civil Service Commission 

is required to furnish, on an annual basis, data as to the highest 
general prevailing rate of wages of the various crafts and types 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

November 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

of labor, including wages paid on holidays and for overtime, as 
paid by private employers in the City. In determining these 
wage rates, the Board of Supervisors is not limited to the data 
submitted by the Civil Service Commission but may consider 
such other information on the subject as it may deem proper. 

The Civil Service Commission has determined that the General 
Prevailing Wage Determination made by the State of California's 
Director of Industrial Relations represents the highest 
prevailing rates of wages for various craft workers except for 
Garage Attendants, such as those operating and maintaining 
City-owned parking lots and garages, because the State's 
General Prevailing Wage Determination survey does not include 
any data for Garage Attendants. Therefore, as an alternative, 
the Civil Service Commission used the agreement between 
Parking Employers and the Teamsters Automotive Employees, 
Local 665 as the benchmark for the highest general prevailing 
wage for Garage Attendants. According to this three year 
agreement for the period beginning December 1, 1989, the 
highest hourly rate was $11.50 per hour as of December 1, 1989, 
the current rate is $11.80 as of December 1, 1990, and the new 
effective rate will be $12.25 as of December 1, 1991 through 
November 30, 1992, or approximately a 3.8 percent increase as of 
December 1, 1991. 

Comments: 1. Mr. Patrick Finney of the Civil Service Commission reports 

that because the proposed resolution would apply to at least 250 
different classifications, the Civil Service Commission has not 
estimated the average increase or decrease in wage rates for all 
of these positions. However, Mr. Finney notes that a copy of the 
report which specifies the increase or decrease in prevailing 
wage rates for each various craft worker position is in the Board 
file. Although Mr. Finney was unable to determine specifically 
what the fiscal impact would be of the proposed resolution, Mr. 
Finney estimates that the overall increase in wage rates for all 
various craft worker positions combined would be less than five 
percent. As noted above, any City department which enters into 
a contract is required by Charter Section 7.204 to pay the highest 
generally prevailing wage rate for labor performed under the 
contract. The Civil Service Commission provides City 
Departments with annual highest generally prevailing wage 
rates data, however, the Civil Service Commission does not 
actively monitor wage rates paid under City contracts. 

2. Mr. Kevin Hagerty of the Department of Parking and Traffic 
reports that the City currently has 12 five-year leases for parking 
lots or garages in which the City receives a percentage of gross 
revenues after parking taxes. Mr. Hagerty explains that any 
increases in operating expenses, due to increases in prevailing 

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS 
BUDGET ANALYST 



Memo to Administration and Oversight Committee 

November 12, 1991 Administration and Oversight Committee Meeting 

wages, would only affect the operators, since the City is already 
locked into receiving a percentage of gross revenues. Mr. 
Hagerty also reports that there are five non-profit garages in the 
City, in which operators would pass increased labor costs to the 
City, because the City receives a percentage of gross revenue less 
operating expenses. However, Mr. Hagerty notes that the 
operators of these five non-profit garages are union operators, so 
it is likely that any decrease in net revenues which the City will 
receive has already been reflected in the Department's FY 1991- 
92 budget. Mr. Hagerty explains it would be difficult to estimate 
any future increase in costs to the City for either the leased or 
non-profit parking lots or garages. 

3. Mr. Burk Delventhal of the City Attorney's Office reports that 
the Board of Supervisors is required to approve the highest 
generally prevailing wage rates paid for private employment 
under public contracts. As noted above, the Board of Supervisors 
may consider other information on the subject which would fix 
the highest generally prevailing wage rates other than the 
survey which is transmitted by the Civil Service Commission. 
However, Mr. Delventhal reports that this means that the Board 
may provide other data which indicates what the highest 
generally prevailing wage rates are, but the Board still must fix 
these wage rates. 

Recommendation: Approve the proposed resolution.
